Read from July 11 to 13, 2011

It's hard to fully grasp--and write, for that matter-- books written in diary form. Beauty Queen, however, surpasses the norm. The reader is overwhelmed with the rawness of the storyline like it was written like a normal novel. When Sam's heroin addiction gets worse and worse, the reader sees it even when Sam doesn't. Sam is stubborn yet optimistic, lovelorn, and absolutely obsessed with heroin. After she is introduced to it, she needs it to do everything. Dates, work, dinner, everything. It's like her fuel, and it's scary. You definitely can tell when her addiction is growing dangerous, but to the protagonist, there is nothing abnormal about it. That's what I think makes it so different than other drug books.
