Nota del redattore

Determination…

YA authors Tehlor Kay Mejia (“We Set the Dark on Fire”) and Anna-Marie McLemore (“When the Moon Was Ours”) team up for this story about two Latinx girls determined to see a person with brown skin win their town’s beauty pageant for the first time. For anyone who loved “Dumplin’.”

Descrizione

A gorgeous and magical collaboration between two critically acclaimed, powerhouse YA authors offers a richly imagined underdog story perfect for fans of Dumplin’ and Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe.

There hasn’t been a winner of the Miss Meteor beauty pageant who looks like Lita Perez or Chicky Quintanilla in all its history.

But that’s not the only reason Lita wants to enter the contest, or her ex-best friend Chicky wants to help her. The road to becoming Miss Meteor isn’t about being perfect; it’s about sharing who you are with the world—and loving the parts of yourself no one else understands.

So to pull off the unlikeliest underdog story in pageant history, Lita and Chicky are going to have to forget the past and imagine a future where girls like them are more than enough—they are everything.

    You will be vibrating with both giggles and rage throughout this book! I wanted to scream for these characters and also be their best friend. I appreciated the realistic ending, but I also hated it (my hatred is directed at the state of racial and LGBTQ+ treatment in our world, not at the actual ending). I wanted to see them take down the homophobic and racist people all over town, but what strongly came across in this story was that these teens living their lives to the fullest is already so disruptive. And that was beautiful.
