Queen of a Kind by Sheila Michelle
13-year-old wealthy heiress Grace Garrett has everything most girls would want. A loving family, a wardrobe to die for, and a house that looks more like a hotel than a home — and she doesn't take any of it for granted. But there is one thing Grace doesn't have that she wants — she wants to be Beaumont High School's 20th Queen.
Beaumont High School in Paradise, Nevada is not your typical, wealthy high school. Having been around for 100 years, it has traditions that no other school has, and the one tradition that stands out among them all is one that they've had for the past 75 years, and that's their prestigious Beaumont High School Queen. A Beaumont Queen is nothing like a one-night-reign Homecoming or Prom Queen, a Beaumont Queen's reign lasts all four years she is at Beaumont, starting on the first day of school her freshman year, and ending on graduation day her senior year. For a Beaumont Queen, the word reign means the same thing as job since a job is what it is. And since this job is four years, it’s not available every year so a girl has to be lucky to fall into the four-year mark, as Beaumont calls it, to even have a chance at becoming a Beaumont Queen, and Grace is one of those lucky girls, because Beaumont High School’s four-year mark is once again here and they have 19 Beaumont Queens to date, and they are looking for their 20th.
Beaumont is serious about their queens and is always looking for the best, and not a girl who thinks she’s the best because she is the best looking and has the best collection of designer clothes, shoes, and handbags out of everyone she knows, as well as being the one that all the boys dream about being with. Bratty and selfish girls also need not apply, but they still do. Since they’re all spoiled in some way because this is just the life that they live, they have to show the Beaumont Queen Organization why they have what it takes to be Beaumont’s 20th Queen because the job is strictly about merit. But no matter how high — or low — a girl thinks of herself, she can’t resist the chance to have a high school job that consists of worldwide traveling, meeting people from all walks of life, and giving talks to sellout crowds — and this is just the beginning.
About The Author...
Sheila Michelle has been a book lover ever since she fell in love with Judy Blume books over 30 years ago while in middle school. Today, she's a full-time writer and writes both young adult and adult commercial fiction.
Sheila likes to write mostly young adult books that are dark, edgy, mysterious, and suspenseful that's filled with teen drama. She also likes to add a humorous element to them as well, and there's always some romance, whether sweet or erotic. But most of all, she likes to have important messages in her books that she wants every girl to learn from, and it's important that these messages are not overlooked. Her characters are usually beautiful, conceited teen girls who are in a serious need of an attitude adjustment (Popular Girls), as well as ones that are considered to be some of the luckiest girls in the world, but have to deal with a lot of issues that no one would ever want to have to deal with (Queen of a Kind; School, Sex and Secrets). Writing has always been a passion of hers, and will continue to be.
When she's not writing, she loves reading mostly non-fiction, but will read anything that she finds interesting. When she's not writing or reading, she loves looking at YouTube videos, going to concerts, eating spicy foods, watching old and new movies and TV shows, and shopping online and in stores that she can't seem to stay out of. A native of Wisconsin, she lives in Las Vegas, Nevada.
