Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

This is a very well written modern re-telling of Beauty and the Beast from the perspective of a 16 year old boy turned into a beast living in New York. This story has several twists within it and the author does a great job keeping the reader interested. I loved this book and did not want to put it done until I was done!

Great book, would recommend it highly. I know it was a YA book but it was well written.
