    Gold Star Award Winner! Jane's been kicked out of more boarding schools than she can count. She's come home to Bienville, Alabama, to live with her grandmother. Suddenly, everyone's talking about her. Hoping to fly under the radar, she's unhappy when her grandmother guilts her into participating in the local pageant. To Jane's horror, she actually makes the Court. Now, she must complete a year of appearances, fund raising, and attending balls with her fellow Maids. For the first time ever, the Court displays the diversity of the town. Jane can't help but make waves on the Court when her arch-nemesis, Ashley, starts putting girls down. Although she has no desire to participate in the events, when the pageant advisor asks her to step down, she's more determined than ever to becomes the perfect Magnolia Maid. She changes from Goth to Southern Belle in a heartbeat and reigns in her sarcasm. I really loved this book. I loved Jane's snark and wit, and I loved how she takes control of the Magnolia Maids and changes the group dynamic. I love the group of girls who make up the Maids - they're so different! While Jane presents a tough exterior, her family past left deep emotional wounds. She's determined, stubborn, and stands up for people and her beliefs. Most of the time, her heart's in the right place, even if the situation goes awry - which it does often. I LOVE the humor, the friendship, and the touch of romance. This one's a winner!
