ABOUT

With a new Beauty and the Beast movie hitting theaters in spring 2017, it’s time to catch up on all things Beastly. Find out what it was like for the beast in Alex Flinn’s contemporary retelling of the classic tale.

I am a beast.

A beast. Not quite wolf or bear, gorilla or dog but a horrible new creature who walks upright—a creature with fangs and claws and hair springing from every pore. I am a monster.

You think I'm talking fairy tales? No way. The place is New York City. The time is now. It's no deformity, no disease. And I'll stay this way forever—ruined—unless I can break the spell.

Yes, the spell, the one the witch in my English class cast on me. Why did she turn me into a beast who hides by day and prowls by night? I'll tell you. I'll tell you how I used to be Kyle Kingsbury, the guy you wished you were, with money, perfect looks, and the perfect life. And then, I'll tell you how I became perfectly . . . beastly.

It was an okay retelling of Beauty & the Beast but not one of my favorite.

Okay, I normally hate romance, but I have to admit the fact that it was a romance in a BOY's POV really caught my eye. And I'm so glad it did. This book was amazing, especially because it was a retellling of a fairytale, which EVERYONE is doing right now.

Great book. A MUST READ!!!!

Boy's POV here isn't that stereotypical. :) Love it!

I ABSOLUTELY LOVED THIS BOOK!!!! I really loved the Disney fairy tale and when my cousin told me there is a modern day book of beauty and beast that takes place in New York I was so happy!
