The Making of a Small-Town Beauty King

A contemporary young-adult comedy about passion, pride, pumpkins, pageantry, and the plight of growing up in a small town. 

Once a year, the boring small town of Grey Acres perks up for its annual town fair. For champion Mathlete and headstrong feminist Stephanie Simon, this year's fair means another year of pressure from her mother (an 80s beauty queen turned pumpkin farmer) to enter the fair's beauty pageant. For college-bound convenience store clerk Jackie Almond, the fair just means the same old rush of customers buying slightly more interesting newspapers. That is, until a fateful meeting with a quirky guidance counselor informs Jackie that most colleges won't accept him without something to make him stand out. 

Just as Jackie hatches a plan to become the first-ever male Fair Queen, Steph devises a scheme to destroy the pageant that's offended her for years. What follows is an all-out war between Steph and Jackie, complete with pumpkin theft, sabotaged first dates, department store shoplifting, and paint-filled water balloon fights, all leading up to one Saturday-night beauty pageant the forgettable town of Grey Acres will always remember.

Now available in paperback & e-book on!

Also available at the following Chicago bookstores: Book Cellar (Lincoln Square), Chicago Comics (Lakeview), & Quimby's (Wicker Park).


  1. Hi Savy. It's the SHS debate team. We have a few interesting ideas for this website. First off you should vlog about us. Second off you should write a book about managing Jack and Teddy. That's all for now...
