In Secrets of Truth & Beauty, Dara is a former child pageant star. So, in order to introduce you to the wonderful authors and characters of the 2009 Debutantes, I am hosting a Debs Pageant on my blog.

Today we have Celeste from Erin Dionne’s Models Don’t Eat Chocolate Cookies. Just like Dara, Celesteis overweight. And both books deal with pageants! Celeste should be a natural for this, right? She would probably beg to differ.

cookiesName: Celeste Harris
Age: 13
Biography: I live with my parents and brother, and my aunt Doreen entered me into this pageant. I SO don’t want to be here.

What is your talent?
Ummm….how do I choose? Eating chocolate cookies? Yurking on my gym teacher’s shoes? Being a Perpetual Teasing Target?

What will you wear for the evening dress competition?
I WANT to wear a hoodie and track pants, but I’ll probably end up in the Peach Monstrosity Bridesmaid dress for my cousin’s wedding.

Who is your escort?
Theo Christmas, my favorite singer/songwriter! Okay, maybe not him. But his POSTER will totally work, right?

And now for the interview portion . . .What color best represents you and why?
Peach. Erin (my author) keeps putting me in it, but I hate it.

Thank you Celeste & Erin!
