Beauty Queens-A guide to being a modern girl
This book illustrates perfectly what growing up as a girl in today's society really is. It acknowledges just about every social justice issue we deal with today. If parents think that this book goes too far for their teenagers they need to realize that their children are exposed to these 'issues' every day not only at school, but in the media that they are so exposed to. I find this book extremely empowering. Beauty Queens is about being who you want to be and who you are comfortable being. If you want to have sex go for it, if you're not in a good mood that's okay, you don't have to say sorry after giving your opinion. These and other situations mentioned in the book are so relevant in today's society. I really believe that these subjects should not be so taboo and we should be educated about these situations. Altogether a great read, not only does Beauty Queens portray several powerful messages, but it's funny, well written and extremely relatable. A must read for teenaged girls everywhere.
