Beastly – Alex Flinn

Posted by Laura on March 31, 2008

 Are you interested in a fun, quick read?

Beastly is a modern telling of “Beauty and the Beast.” This story is told from the point of view of the beast, Kyle Kingsbury, the beautiful son of a egotistical television news reporter.  Kyle lives in New York City and goes to a private school where he easily is voted king of the dance.  He tricks a girl into thinking she was going to the dance with him so that he can humiliate her in front of everyone.

This act of cruelty is the final straw, and his appearance is turned into that of the beast (his inside was that way already).  But, because of one small act of kindness, he is given two years to find true love and break the spell.  Can a beast find true love?

Maybe, maybe not.  He does find a on-line support group for people who are considering or who have had “Unexpected Changes”.  Other characters from fairy tales are also members of the chat group.
