Journal Entry 1 by wingmegami-no-ushiwing from Calgary, Alberta Canada on Saturday, June 09, 2012

9 out of 10

This was a great book - a very interesting and fun look at our image obbsessed media driven, consumerist culture.

From Amazon:
From bestselling, Printz Award-winning author Libba Bray, the hilarious (and sometimes twisted) story of a plane crash, beauty contestants, and desert island survival.
Teen beauty queens. A desert island. Mysteries and dangers. No access to e-mail. 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.

A real guilty-pleasure kind of book! Totally girly, lots of campy fun. Don't miss reading all the footnotes through out the book.

Will return it to the group for the next reader awaiting!

Great snarky fun that had serious issues that weren't (lip)-glossed over. I didn't like the ending as is seemed abrupt and anti-climatic.
