The characters in Beauty Queens have the perfect opportunity for personal growth. Trapped on an island with only their own resourcefulness to rely on, the girls must dig deep and use every ounce of strength inside them... sometimes, it was strength they didn't know they had. Of course, dire circumstances bring out the best and the worst in people, as we see over the course of this book. Which character do you think changed the most, and in what ways? Which character do you think changed the least, and why do you think she didn't change?
