I was pretty impressed with this book. I loved the way that Bray used these 14 beauty queens as a way of talking about female empowerment. It's maybe not quite runway-perfect (namely, I'm irrationally irritated that a couple of the girls didn't get their own "about me" pages, as if their backstories weren't worth expanding upon) but it's very clever and impressivly funny in its parody of our society.
