Book Preview: Beauty Queens by Libba Bray

Beauty Queens on a desert island...now that's funny!

It's 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 emall. 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.

A lot of our students enjoyed the historical fiction series "A Great and Terrible Beauty" by Libba Bray so her fans are likely to also enjoy her new book.  It certainly sounds like a lot of fun, doesn't it?
