Beauty Queens

Beauty Queens - Libba Bray Had a good time with this book, but found fatigue setting in after awhile. Felt like I was reading about caricatures instead of characters. And although I whole-heartily endorse most of what Bray was preaching about gender roles and the media after so much it began to feel didactic.There was some great stuff here however. I would love to teach an older group of students about media literacy using this book.
