  1. Hello there, long time no see. Anyways.

    This book was an absolutely fantastic book. You take a bunch of beauty queens and throw them on an island where there’s an evil plan going down and you find out what happens.
    As with Libba Bray it’s a fantastic read, of course. The characters are all very diverse and there’s someone you have to feel like you agree with.
    I really enjoyed the footnotes, I think they made it a lot funnier. I also really enjoyed how badly she bashed beauty marketing in her book. It was hilarious.
    Will this be a Printz winner? I can’t really say as I haven’t read many books this year. An honor? I’d say yes.
