Beastly – Alex Flinn

beastly

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.

There’s just something magical about classic fairy tales, but I love when an author manages to rewrite a classic with a new twist. This is truly a modern day “Beauty and the Beast” and Kyle Kingsley is a fascinating character. Recommended for fairy tale lovers! – Jessica, Teen Librarian
