Beastly by Alex Flinn-Teen


Rating: 4/5 Stars

About the Book: Kyle Kingsbury is popular and handsome and he knows it. He can get anything he wants because of his famous father. He goes to an elite school, has the coolest friends and the hottest girlfriend. Kyle was king-until he decided to play a trick on the goth girl at school. Turns out Kendra isn't just a goth girl, she's a witch and she's going to teach Kyle a lesson. She turns Kyle into a beast as ugly on the outside as he is on the inside. Now Kyle's father won't look at him, his friends won't have anything to do with him, and his girlfriend has left. Kyle's father banishes him to a private home where his only company are his maid and tutor. Will Kyle break the curse? Can anyone ever love a beast?

GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: Ok, anyone who knows me knows I'm a sucker for fairy tales and fairy tale re-tellings. This is a curl up and read in one sitting sort of book. Beastly is beautifully told and keeps a lot of magic and romance of the original Beauty and the Beast tale. The thing I liked the most is that this is the story told from the beast's perspective. I liked getting inside his head and hearing his side of the story. If you like fairy tales, you'll want to pick up a copy of this one for your collection!
