Beauty Queens

Beauty Queens, Libba Bray’s latest book, is sure to make a woman out of you—a strong, self-empowered woman of the world. Of course, the book is hilariously absurd, from the beauty queens-turned-survivalists to the love-stricken dictator of the Republic of Cha-Cha to the megalomaniacal Corporation that threatens them all. Past the bawdy bodacious fun, however, Bray explores what it means to be a girl, busting both the traditional ideas of womanhood as well the more extreme ideas of feminism to strike a healthy and realistic balance. It’s a vital lesson for modern teenage girls to learn; thankfully, there’s something here for all of them.
