From bestselling, Printz Award-winning author Libba Bray, the story of a plane of beauty pageant contestants that crashes on a desert island.

Teen beauty queens. A "Lost"-like island. Mysteries and dangers. No access to email. 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.

*Taken from Goodreads

This cover of this book is sort of what makes me want to read it. I find it extremely hilarious, the idea of taking some prissy high maintenance teen beauty queens and dropping them right smack in the middle of a deserted island sort of Lost-esque just freaking makes me LOL FOREVER. So, yeah it's definitely on my wishlist.
