Life in a Hoopskirt
Never Sit Down in a Hoopskirt and Other Things I Learned in Southern Belle Hell by Crickett Rumley, I had a feeling this book would make me laugh. It certainly did. Jane is more goth than Southern belle and yet somehow she finds herself picked to participate in the Magnolia Maid Pageant. The successful pageant girls will represent Bienville for one year, by appearing at various events in the Southern belle outfit, aka the dress with the really big hoopskirt. Jane has one goal, escape before she's seen in public wearing that dress! Jane's sarcastic comments, and the crazy situations she gets into are hysterical. If you want a good laugh, this book has plenty.
