Title: Miss Meteor
Author: Tehlor Kay Mejia and Anna-Marie McLemore
Publishing Date: Sept. 22nd 2020
Age Category & Genre: Young Adult Magical Realism
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.
Witty and heartfelt with characters that leap off the page, Miss Meteor is acclaimed authors Anna-Marie McLemore and Tehlor Kay Mejia’s first book together.
I am still currently enjoying Miss Meteor. Unfortunately, due to personal reasons, I have not finished reading this book yet. Hence, my review is still currently unavailable.
