Beauty Queens by Libba Bray

In Beauty Queens by Libba Bray, a plane full of beauty queens crashes on a desert island.

Where things go really wrong for the boys of William Golding's Lord of the Flies, the girls of Beauty Queens work well together to survive this challenge. If you're looking for a co-ed version, there's the Netflix show The Society, which is also a [Spoiler]Pied Piper modern!AU. I'm excited it got renewed. ^__^

Beauty Queens has a parodic tone which is sometimes funny, sometimes annoying. I didn't like that it made some of the girls sound totally dumb.

In terms of representation, there's a trans girl and a little bit of f/f. Two of the candidates are WOC.
