So... I really don't feel like it's necessary to review this book. Beauty Queen is nothing new if you have already read anything by Ellen Hopkins, Go Ask Alice, or Tweak, etc. I really didn't want to waste my time with finishing it, but Beauty Queen does only have 168, not bad, I read almost the entire book this morning. The one interesting thing I did find was the Linda Glovach (the author) actually took heroin while writing the book. I guess thats a good way to get the story to be acurate, but it's really just a stupid, stupid idea. It also made me wonder if Beauty Queen had any similarities to the author's life. Two stars for unoriginality and lack of describing the actual effects of heroin. Except for the 1st withdrawl scene. Doesn't compare at all to Ellen Hopkins. :(
