Beauty Queens

Beauty Queens - Libba Bray This was an amazing, empowering story. I wasn't as attached to it as I had been to all the books I read over the summer only because of school. I definitely found myself reading it when I was supposed to be in lecture smh. I loved how every character had a voice and had something different going on with them. I also loved how they had commercial breaks every so often. It was too funny. It dealt with many of the issues that girls face nowadays and was still light-hearted and funny. I really do appreciate Bray giving light to some of these issues; like the fact that they all felt like they had to be Barbie doll perfect. I loved that one girl was rough around the edges. I think I enjoyed her most because she seemed most like me... Well as in they don't all need to be blonde, with big breast, small bodies, and tiny clothes..... If you haven't read it, I suggest you do it NOW!Overall, I give it, **** (4 out of 5)
