I have been making progress on my ARC shelf and it was time to get to Miss Meteor by Anna Marie McLemore and Tehlor Kay Mejia.
Synopsis: 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 why 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.
I wasn’t a big fan of Lake Lore which was one of these author’s other books but this one ended up being a pleasant surprise for me! The book was focused on two ex best friends coming together to try and win a beauty pageant and show the town that maybe different isn’t a bad thing. It explores gender identity, inclusivity, found family and it was all told in such a cute way.
I really felt for these characters and wanted the best for them. Each person battled with different personal issues and worked through them with the support of those around them. I also never thought I would enjoy a book about a beauty pageant but it was a lot of fun.
Book Rating: 4/5
