Recommendation: 'Beastly ' by Alex Flinn

Beastly by Alex Flinn.

A modern retelling of beauty and the beast.

Kyle Kingsbury is good looking, rich and popular but has the moral compass of a wet sock. He goes too far one night and manages to tick off a powerful witch who lays a curse on him. Kyle gets transformed into a hideous beast, once he loses his looks his father locks him away and only allows a loyal maid and a blind teacher to look after him. One night when he is skulking about, he rescues a girl from his school and takes her back to his home. Through the girl Kyle begins to grow as a person, learn what true beauty and happiness is.

Beastly is also being turned into a movie and should be out sometime soon. I suggest reading the book first, it will grab you and not let you go until you’ve finished.

This one is a five star book for me!
