Publisher Description

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.

An absolute great story of true love becoming not only about looks, but about what's inside your heart. Whether you are nice or cruel in your heart, if you love something, set it FREE! :) This was a very well-written book! I'm glad I had the honor to read it! GREAT job to Alex Flinn!

Fairy tale

I would say this is a good book. However, i found it to bit odd and cheesy in some parts. I think this is a book that a young teenage girl would enjoy reading especially since it is an easy read ( it took me a little less than 2 days to read. I'm 19). I wanted to read it because the movie looked good, but I have to say many elements appear different than the movie and I've only seen the trailer. It was apparent that the book was meant to parallel Beauty and the Beast so if you like simple classic fairy tales revamped into a modern setting I would say this book is for you.
