Praise
"Weird, wonderful and just perfect." (starred review)
"This inventive satire mocks celebrity culture while celebrating the resilience of teen girls...The humor is both dark and madcap, including footnote asides and commercial scripts that keep the laughs coming."
From the Publisher
Annotation Bestelling author Libba Bray mocks the culture of reality television, addresses notions of girlhood and beauty, and delves into the heady brew of gender, race, and identity, while at the same time managing to create a darkly humorous and suspenseful young adult novel. When a planeload of beauty queens crashes on a deserted tropical island, they must find a way to survive. But does survival include getting ready for an upcoming competition and finding a way to stay perfectly groomed? And is the island really uninhabited? Comparisons to THE LORD OF THE FLIES, television's LOST, and the classic GILLIGAN'S ISLAND are apt, but with a serious dose of feminism and sass. Libba Bray is the author of GOING BOVINE, which won the 2010 Printz Award.
