Fiction. Young Adult. Women's Studies. PLASTERED IN PRETTY is a dystopian tale. N.C. Marks activates, deactivates at will the Alice in Wonderland syndrome in a Caribbean paradise. Facebook and Instagram are virtual religious icons. A pyromaniac burns a new-born in the late night, office-bound civil servants chat only via WhatsApp, friends with benefits, ''Persons With Pedigree,'' flamboyant vagrants, a car accident victim in distress over her $1,000-hairpiece, a rapist landlord, a government minister's ''mysterious snake,'' a church first lady protects her psychopathic son with hush money, and the willful but fragile protagonist is not yet among this list of characters! Vivid, with a disturbing accuracy of social media posts, and often funny.
