BEAUTY QUEENS

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Libba Bray

Young Adult Ages 14+ • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

Author-narrator Libba Bray starts with this premise: What would happen if a plane carrying Teen Dream Beauty Queens were to crash on an (almost) deserted island, leaving a handful of girls with no chaperones? She ends with an expertly crafted tale of girl power, a social commentary, and a hilarious spoof on popular TV shows and classic books. As narrator, Bray puts her theatrical background to good use, changing accents, register, and pitch so smoothly and consistently that listeners will forget there's but a single narrator. From the Texas drawl of Taylor Rene Krystal Hawkins (gun-carrying homecoming queen) to the Yankee accent of Adina Greenberg (feminist journalist from New Hampshire), Bray gives each character a distinct, recognizable voice. The addition of thoughtful sound effects makes this “un-turn-off-able.” C.B.L. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award, 2012 Audies Winner © AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2011]
