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. This edition features cover art from the 2011 movie starring Vanessa Hudgens and Alex Pettyfer. 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.show more

Our customer reviews

I love the way Alex turned this old story around. The way she wrote how ugly he was (not looking, but personality). She have made a strong character in Kyle, the same was Lindy/Linda. I love the romantic parts. I think it was a bit slow within, but it was a great book anyways. I loved the chat part before the parts in this book... Where we meet other characters from other fairytale's, like the little mermaid... The script was normal and the chapters had normal length. I think this is a book for those who loved the Disney version or just want a great book!show more

Wow! This was such an AMAZING book! I loved it! It is a modern day version of Beauty and the beast and shows how Kyle Kingsbury the perfect guy turns into a hideous beast but can still find true love with Lindy. I cannot wait to watch the movie and it should be very interesting to compare it to the book.show more
