Beauty Queens by Libba Bray

aScholastic, 2011.

Lesbian/Transgender – High School

In this very popular, and over-the-top novel, a group of teenage beauty contestants are stranded on an apparently deserted island when their plane crashes. With few resources they manage to survive storms, people-eating snakes, snarky infighting, and pirates. When they uncover an arms-dealing conspiracy related to the beauty pageant, the young women put their heads together and put a stop to it, saving themselves, and continuing to practice for their pageant in the meantime. Among the contestants is a lesbian teen, and one of the pirates is transgender.
