This afternoon I finished Libby Bray's Beauty Queens. I read her Printz winner, Going Bovine, and though I could appreciate it, I did not love it. However, I thought Beauty Queens was a riot. It was definitely over the top. The premise is an airplane full of teen beauty queens crashes on an inhabited tropical island. There are a handful of survivors, but no surviving adults. Think Lord of the Flies goes feminine with lots of girl power and coconut milk beauty routines. The Corporation which sponsors the pagent chooses not to rescue the girls because of the covert weapons' operation on the island. For a good part of the book, the girls don't even know the island is inhabited. Lots of references to the Corporations' products and reality television shows. Some of the girls are given distinct personalities. Others are mentioned several times in passing. This book has some sexual content--a boatload of reality tv pirates crashes onto the island, but it is all in fun.
I don't think this is a title that everyone will like, but I definitely know some upperclassmen(upperclasswomen) who will get a kick out of it.
