I can't even put into words how much I dislike the cover art for this book and I've never actually attempted a novel by this author but the idea of pagent contestants stuck on a desert island sounds amazing. A little bit like Lost and Toddlers & Tiaras combined.
Summary from Goodreads: 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 emall. 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.
