Beauty Queens by Libba Bray

Our next #swvbc reading. Weds., April 25th @ 6:00 PM

From Libba Bray's site:

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

Out-there satire…Lord of the Flies with an evening gown competition, anyone?
Publishers Weekly

While the foibles of today's media/celebrity/political culture are the clear target of this stinging satire, the teen cast is funny and endearing in its own right…The humor is both dark and madcap, including footnote asides and commercial scripts that keep the laughs coming.
Kirkus Reviews
