“Bray's newest novel deserves far more than a simple 'Gilligan's Island meets Lord of the Flies' comparison. Yes it's funny, and yes, it's scary. And of course, you won't be able to put it down until you've read the last page. But this social-comedy adventure is also a masterfully written, inspiring story about being true to yourself, no matter what.”
-- Ellen Klein, Hooray for Books!, Alexandria, VA


Description

From bestselling, Printz Award-winning author Libba Bray, 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.
