    The 50 contestants in the Miss Teen Dream pageant thought this was going to be a fun trip to the beach, where they could parade in their state-appropriate costumes and compete in front of the cameras. But sadly, their airplane had another idea, crashing on a desert island and leaving the survivors stranded with little food, little water, and practically no eyeliner. What’s a beauty queen to do? Continue to practice for the talent portion of the program - or wrestle snakes to the ground? Get a perfect tan - or learn to run wild? And what should happen when the sexy pirates show up?

    I don't usually write reviews but I bought this book largely due to the reviews that I read, hence my 2 cents worth: This book was really hard to finish. I have a very eclectic audible library and rarely add something that I truly hate. Sadly, this book was forgettable enough to fall into the "hate" category. The plot was contrived, I didn't find it funny, sarcastic or particularly well-narrated. I really tried to find some socially-redeeming message re gender identity or "real" beauty but came away feeling that it is a sad commentary on our obsession with greed, violence and sex. I do not recommend it to anyone, particularly 11-13 year olds!
