From the back cover:
Paulina, the reigning queen bee at Ghana's most exclusive boarding school, has her sights set on the Miss Global Universe pageant. But the arrival of Ericka, a new student with undeniable talent and beauty, captures the attention of the pageant recruiter - and Paulina's hive-minded friends. This buoyant and biting comedy explores the universal similarities (and glaring differences) facing teenage girls across the globe.
"...fascinating... The nasty-teen comedy genre emerges wonderfully refreshed and even deepened by its immersion in a world it never considered. ...Beneath the infectious silliness of [the] play's adopted genre, the ugly question of internalized racism lurks. ...With no underlining and without sacrificing laughs, [Bioh] is able...to bring the audience to an unexpectedly ambivalent conclusion about the morality of cultural dominance." --The New York Times
"...funny and fast-paced... brisk and clear... [Bioh] knows how to craft bouncy, juicy dialogue that performers can have fun with. She also knows that there's a sting inside all this fun." --New York Magazine
"[School Girls] is a ferociously entertaining morality tale that proves as heartwarming as it is hilarious. ...The clever writing features plenty of astute period-appropriate touches... School Girls...arrives as a delightful surprise." --The Hollywood Reporter
