This book is like cotton candy, which tends to be a lot of fun, but it can be a bit too fluffy and sweet for me at times. I would probably give it only 3 starts, but it has drag queens, some excellent humor, and a few touching moments, which all add up to a 4th star.
I enjoyed this roadtrip-to-enter-a-contest-to-win-a-scholarship story (a popular trend in YA these days), but it’s probably not a story that will stick with me for long, despite the interesting journey.
I did appreciate the diversity in characters, and there were a few unexpected viewpoints that caught my attention and made me stop to think. All in all, it’s a good book.
