In the past year she has commented numerous times on the writing of Beauty Queens. It sounds like it's been a torturous journey getting it out on the page, but everyone's long wait appears to be at an end, because look what I stumbled on!
Yes there's both a cover and a publishing date! May 24th (the second day of the BEA) is the release date for this highly anticipated, very awesome sounding new Libba Bray novel. I can't be more excited that I'll find myself in NYC for it's debut day and am crossing my fingers that I can finally meet her!
On the off chance you haven't already heard Libba talking about it, here's the amazon blurb:
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.
