Waiting on Wednesday (May 25) - Beauty Queens by Libba Bray

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine , that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating or books that are in our TBR pile.  This week’s “can’t-wait-to-read” selection is

Summary (by Goodreads):

From bestselling, Printz Award-winning author Libba Bray, the story of a plane of beauty pageant contestants that crashes on a desert island.

Teen beauty queens. A "Lost"-like island. Mysteries and dangers. No access to email. And the spirit of fierce, feral competition that lives underground in girls, a savage brutality that can only be revealed by a journey into the heart of non-exfoliated darkness. Oh, the horror, the horror! Only funnier. With evening gowns. And a body count.

The first time I ever saw Libba, she was wearing a cow costume and trotting around to promote her book (going Bovine).  Now that takes guts to do!. I LOVE the idea of America's Next Top Model meets Survivor.  Just seems like a really fun read!
