From Printz Award-winning author Libba Bray, the hilarious story of a plane crash, beauty contestants, and desert island survival.

Teen beauty queens. A desert island. Mysteries and dangers. No access to e-mail. And the spirit of fierce, feral competition that lives underground in girls, a savage brutality that can only be revealed by a journey into the heart of non-exfoliated darkness. Oh, the horror, the horror! Only funnier. With evening gowns. And a body count.

Libba Bray is the author of the 2010 Printz Award winning Going Bovine, and the acclaimed Gemma Doyle trilogy. She lives in Brooklyn, New York.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Quirky, But Fun This is, quite honestly, one of the strangest books I have ever read. I experienced a whirlwind of emotions while reading, flipping from laughter to 'what the heck just happened?' in a split second. Overall, I would say I enjoyed it, at least enough to give it a three-star rating. However, the footnotes and commercial breaks were a tad aggravating, and very quickly disrupted my focus. Cute, at first, but by the time the narrator is announcing "Footnote Thirty-Nine", it's not funny anymore. In a nutshell, I can't see myself picking up this book or a re-read, but it's also something I'm glad I took the time to read. I've heard it described as something you will either love or hate, but I'd honestly say I fall somewhere in the middle with this one.

"Libba Bray not only breaks the mold... she smashes it and grinds the tiny pieces into the sidewalk. For the record, I'd go anywhere she wanted to take me." -The New York Times Book Review
