SummaryAdd a Summary
Beauty Queens was hilarious, intelligent and entertaining. There really wasn't one main character, instead there was an ensemble cast one beauty queens from different states in the US. I enjoyed how much time each character got, and how their personalities varied so much. Beauty Queens was a satire that managed to be silly without being superficial, and empowering without being to heavy. The book begins with a plane crash that lands a bunch of Teen Dream contestants on an island. The survivors group together and elect Miss. Texas as their leader. Than the proceed to practice their skills for the talent portion of the pageant, and apply make-up. See my full review here: http://throughthebookvine.blogspot.com/2011/06/beauty-queens.html
