I am a beast. A beast! Not quite wolf or bear, gorilla or dog but a horrible new creature who walks upright. 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.
OH MY GOSH. I am in love with this book! In my mind it is perfection, like come on its a retelling of the classic and my personal favorite love story of all time; Beauty and the Beast. Like whats not to like, about a evil witch putting a spell on a cute guy and making them into someone who is now ugly, a beast. Covered with fur, grows claws and starts acting beast like and the only way to break the spell is to have a girl fall in love with him and kiss him. And the girl he ends up falling for is a girl who's father sold her to the beast in exchange for some kind of favor. I mean seriously, this book has all the major points in the story, including a library (the most important part!) So i seriously loved this book and am adding to the retelling's-of-the-beauty-and-the-beast area of my shelves which i am very pumped to make bigger now. I highly recommend this book and I really want to see the movie now too!It has 5 stars in my book.
