This book is officially my favorite book, it has girly, romance, humor, and action. All in one! They have that kind of Hunger Games Capital Feel to it though for the Corporation which made you feel like someone was always watching you. There are fifty girls on the plane going to one single place to get judged by beauty, talent, and smarts and one of them to be crowned Miss Teen Dream. They all crash land on a deserted island. Can you imagine what could happen next?
