Beauty Queens

by Libba Bray

SCHOLASTIC INC | June 1, 2012 | Trade Paperback |

Not yet rated | write a review
From bestselling, Printz Award-winning author Libba Bray comes the hilarious (and sometimes twisted) story of a plane of beauty pageant contestants that crashes on a desert island.

The fifty contestants in the Miss Teen Dream Pageant thought this was going to be a fun trip to the beach, where they could parade in their state-appropriate costumes and compete in front of the cameras. But sadly, their airplane had another idea, crashing on a desert island and leaving the survivors stranded with little food, little water, and practically no eyeliner.

What''s a beauty queen to do? Continue to practice for the talent portion of the program-or wrestle snakes to the ground? Get a perfect tan-or learn to run wild? And what should happen when the sexy pirates show up?

Welcome to the heart of non-exfoliated darkness. Your tour guide? None other than Libba Bray, the hilarious, sensational, Printz Award-winning author of A Great and Terrible Beauty and Going Bovine. The result is a novel that will make you laugh, make you think, and make sure you never see beauty the same way again.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Beauty Queens

"''Beauty Queens'' is a madcap surrealist satire of the world in which her readers have come of age-reality TV, corporate sponsorship, product placement, beauty obsession-but ultimately, it''s a story of empowering self-discovery." - New York Times Book Review

*"Readers will come for the twisted fun and walk away with a whole banquet of questions." - Bulletin of the Center for Children''s Books, starred review

*"Whip-smart social commentary, surreal plot elements, and feminist themes come together in this bizarre and brilliant story... The empowering theme of self-acceptance and the affirming message that women should not underestimate themselves or others makes this novel a potentially life-changing book for budding feminists." - School Library Journal, starred review
