Beauty Queens by Libba Bray

Wow. If you could describe this book in one word it would be wow. Beauty Queens was absolutley wonderful in everyway. This book was about beauty queen contestants who's plane crash lands on a desserted island, and they have to fight for survival. Now, that's not the only reason I loved the book as much as I did. I loved getting to know the characters and all their various reasons for entering the pageant. I also loved the commerical breaks and various interviews in the book. It gave it a very much television vibe.

Characters: The characters in this book were very relatable. They also had great personalities and they were described very well and you couldn't help but feel that these characters were your best friends. You felt their pain, were ecstatic when they accomplished something, and cried when they lost a friend. Their reasons for joining the Miss Teen Dream pageant were also very relatable, if not a little weird.

Writing Style: Awesome. Libba Bray does a really great job of making these girls sound like teenagers. She creates magic with her words and she makes this book seem like you are really watching an episode of tv with the commercial breaks and contestant interviews.

Rating: I would definitely give this book five worms. It just felt so real. The characters were relatable, the plot was good, and the writing style was excellent. This book is definetly one to check out.
