From bestselling, Printz Award-winning author Libba Bray, the story of a plane of beauty pageant contestants that crashes on a desert island.
Teen beauty queens. A "Lost"-like island. Mysteries and dangers. No access to email. 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.--Goodreads
Just . . . read the description. I know you skipped over it.
HOLY COW THIS SOUNDS GOOD!! And that cover?! I am SO IN.
Bonus for y'all: I may have done one or two pageants back in the day. Here is a photo. Yes, I am holding a trophy. (I won a trophy!)
I was never normal. Even back in high school when I was still pretending to be.
Aaaaanyway. So there's my pick for this last Wednesday of my 23rd year. Treacherous islands and bitchy girls. Mwahahahaha.
