Beastly by Alex Flinn August 12, 2011

Teen Review By: Shayla M.

Rating: 4/5

What is the book about?

Kyle Kingsbury is a shallow guy who is rude and mean. One day he takes it too far with a girl in his class and she turns him into an ugly beast. Then he has 2 years to get someone to love him or he stays like that forever.

What did you like/dislike about it?

I liked how it was a modern version of “Beauty and the Beast” which is one of my favourite fairytales.

Who would you recommend it to?

Anyone who likes fantasy and fairytales.
