50 Beauty Queens from 50 states are on their way to the big pageant when their plane, like, totally crashes on a creepy tropical island.
There is no food. No guys (well, not until the pirates show up, anyways). And no sign of rescue… unless the weird red lights in the distance are from a subversive, mercenary Corporation with a secret base on the island. But they could just be the volcano.
What’s a girl gonna do? Set fishing lines? Build huts from palm fronds? Battle giant snakes and quicksand? Work on her tan? And how long can a group of teenage girls keep secrets from each other?
