Super silly as expected plus some feminism 101. The author had a good time narrating - one of the villains sounded a lot like Sarah Palin. ( )

Super funny, nice dystopian strain, more of a beach read but still a good afternoon read with lots of women characters and definite humor and satire. Liked it a lot. ( )

Brilliant. Mind-blowingly brilliant. Libba Bray takes a stereotype (the typical dumb pageant girl) and turns it on its head. These smart, sassy, resourceful, and fabulous beauty queens shipwrecked on a desert island are a force to be reckoned with.

Quotations
Tiara's hands flew to her mouth. "In health class, they told us there's an or in whore because you always have a choice to respect your body and say no. You've got one of those STPs now, don't you?"
Petra stared. "STP is a motor oil."
"Oh. My. Gosh. We didn't learn about that one. It must be really bad!" Tiara gestured solemnly to her crotch. "Protect the citadel. Protect the citadel."

Book description
From bestselling, Printz Award-winning author Libba Bray comes 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.
