Reviews
Headstart: Miss Universe 2015 Pia Wurtzbach on her new book, 'Queen of the Universe' ANC
"Amid the glamour and grit of stylish gowns and high-heeled powerwalking, this debut novel is an interesting peek into the Philippines' pageant scene as well as the local way of life portrayed through food, city culture, and familial bonds." --Hazel Ureta, Library Journal
"It was a chance for me to put in little details of my experience...so if you read it, some of it sounds familiar!" --Pia Wurtzbach, discussing her book on CNN Philippines
"Pia's life story already reads like a book, so it only made sense that she turned pageants into pages. Queen of the Universe tells the story of Cleo, a breadwinner and aspiring beauty queen trying to prove her worth despite life's supposed setbacks." --Cosmopolitan Philippines
"Pia Wurtzbach, known for her grace and beauty on the global stage, showcases her creative prowess as she enters into the pursuit of writing. Queen of the Universe is her first-ever novel, promising to transport readers to a captivating take on grit and glamour." --The Smart Local Philippines
"Pia emphasized that Queen of the Universe features a handful of Filipino representations as well. "There are Filipino elements to it--when you read; when you're a foreigner," she said, noting that they also fine-tuned the content so that both Filipinos and the global audience can relate. "You can read about the jeep. You will read places around the Philippines, so then you'll know that the setting is here." --Metro Style Philippines
"The story is similar to Wurtzbach's own journey, from being an actress and TV personality to winning one of the most coveted pageant crowns. However, she stresses that the book is "not a pageant book."...You will relate to [it] even if you don't have any interest in pageants," she said. "I've made it spicier and meatier for the young readers who will [read] it." --Rappler.com
