Reviews

Praise for Beauty Queens:

"'Beauty Queens' is a madcap surrealist satire of the world in which her readers have come of age - reality TV, corporate sponsorship, product placement, beauty obsession - but ultimately, it's a story of empowering self-discovery." - New York Times Book Review

* "Readers will come for the twisted fun and walk away with a whole banquet of questions." - Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books, starred review

* "Whip-smart social commentary, surreal plot elements, and feminist themes come together in this bizarre and brilliant story.... The empowering theme of self-acceptance and the affirming message that women should not underestimate themselves or others makes this novel a potentially life-changing book for budding feminists." - School Library Journal, starred review

"Though the jokes fly thick as unplucked brows, Bray also goes deeper into each character to show how our culture's insidious focus on female perfection keeps girls from being who they are. ... Escaping civilization-the best thing that could happen to a teenage girl? Sure looks that way." - Horn Book

"Bray spins this hilarious romp into an examination of femininity and feminism, sex and sexuality." - Booklist
