At one point in my life I helped judge a couple of pagents. So, when I saw this book, “The Rhinestone Sisterhood-A Journey Through Small-Town America, One Tiara at a Time” by David Valdes Greenwood, I was interested to read about other pagents across America.
The funny part about this book is that I know someone who was “Miss Mardi Gras” so when I shared parts of this book with her, she laughed out loud with the descriptions of some of the pagents because of her own experiences.
I felt like Greenwood was pretty honest in this book about the girls and the pagents that they were competing in. I am working on being honest about things too (that I don’t necessarily love) and I didn’t love this book. It was interesting and at times humerous, but not one of those books that I love and would recommend everyone read. If you are interested in pagents, small-towns, and girl drama, this may be a good fit for you. If not, don’t feel bad passing it up. I won’t mark you down on the “scorecard” because of it!
