Book review: Beauty Queens by Libba Bray

This book is about beauty queens on their way to a pageant when their plan crashed on a desserted island. While trying to survive on this island of weird indigenous animals. The beauty queens build hut, hunt for food, and still try keeping up with their pageant routine. They know in their hearts the corporation will not stop till they have been saved. But over time they find out everything they were told and lead to believe was false, the corporation won't save them they can care less, in fact they want they girls dead.

MY REVIEW: Let me start off by saying I L-O-V-E-D,loved this book, it was so easy to read it was as if I watched a great movie on T.V. Libba Bray is not only a exquisite writer she made it funny and fresh. She took a tragic beginning and spun it into a heroic end! The characters all having their own stories that tied into the bigger picture. I enjoyed how they all had tales its intended audience could relate to. My favorite characters had to be Miss Texas, she was very strong willed and straight forward, never once giving up on her dream. I found that by itself motivating she knew exactly what she wanted and went for it. Libba took different characters from different upbringings and nationality  and had them work though them to bring an united front.

I would give this 5 stars out of five. A charming tale with adventure mystery, and yes a little love on the side. It had humor and wit, a understanding of life and moving forward.
