This is a book about a bunch of beauty queens whose plane crashes on an island that was supposedly good. It is by the “gypsies speak Romanian right?” author.
It is actually a cute book that said a bunch of nice, thoughtful things about race and gender and family and a bunch of very mean things about corporations.
I am confused too but it’s a thing I didn’t hate so I thought I should share.It’s not the best book ever – it’s kind of predictable (though its off-the-wallness helps), intensely cutesy, and a couple plot points involve people acting crazy which is a bit of a cop-out. But it’s a very nice book that I’d actually want other people to read, as opposed to pretty much all other YA fiction.
Basically, if the only book a kid reads this year is Unwind, that’s horrible. If the only book they read this year is Beauty Queens, that’s okay and maybe its message about how learning is good will encourage them to work hard in their classes so they too can build murder catapults for their enemies.
It is a book I’m willing to spend actual money to buy, which is more than I would say about most things. So yeah. Read it or buy it as a gift for younger people in your life.
