The fifty contestants in the Miss Teen Dream pageant thought this was going to be a fun trip to the beach, where they could parade in their state-appropriate costumes and compete in front of the cameras. But sadly, their airplane had another idea, crashing on a desert island and leaving the survivors stranded with little food, little water, and practically no eyeliner.
What's a beauty queen to do? Continue to practice for the talent portion of the program - or wrestle snakes to the ground? Get a perfect tan - or learn to run wild? And what should happen when the sexy pirates show up?
Reasons why I love Beauty Queens
The commercial breaks. Oh how I laugh so hard while reading it.
The little info and trivia, which is another ridiculously fun addition to the story.
How the story was done in such a funny way and also somehow a sarcastic one [though in a good way] that is based on the reality of our current lifestyle, so engrossed with commercialism and consumerism.
The pirates! Really, if all the pirates are that gorgeous and fun to be with, I’ll be happy to be stranded in an island with them. But on the second thought, I’m not.
The girls or the beauty queens. They are just not the typical girls who just love fashion and stuff and too superficial but they are more than just meets the eye. The revelations in the life of those girls are shocking.
Miss Mississippi and Miss New Hampshire are my favorite out all of them. They are so different but I love their character because they are so fun to read and have more depth than the other girls. Well, I think Adina has more depth but Tiara is just so cute…
So piece of advice, if you have not read this book, what are you waiting for? Do it! Because I can guarantee that you will have fun reading it. [Notice how many times I used “fun” in this review? That’s how I really love this book]
