Review: Beauty Queens - Libba Bray
What a ride.
Beauty Queens was a great book. It's about a group of beauty queens who are on their way to a pageant when their plane crashes on a desert island and they have to learn to survive and how to be a team. Like Lord of the Flies only cooler and with girls (and therefore better).
It had a really diverse crew of girls, including a trans girl, girls of different sexual backgrounds, education backgrounds, socioeconomic backgrounds, family backgrounds, everything.
It also has pirates.
And a distinct dislike of capitalism.
I rate it a 7 out of 10. Wasn't as good as Going Bovine but still a nice change from paranormal and magic themed works that Bray often writes.
