Review: Beastly By Alex Finn

BeastlyBeastly by Alex Flinn

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

An orginal take on an amazing fairy tale, Beastly takes Beauty and the Beast and introduces a new generation to this wonderful story. Kyle Kingsbury has it all, so it seemed until the ugliness that he spewed forth was settled back onto him. It was one act of simple kindness that gave him two years to break a curse that was put on him. Abandoned by his father, left with a maid, a blind tutor he settles into routine - until, he is offered a girl by her drug addicted, crime spreeing father to get out of trouble. As the fates have it Lindy is the same girl he showed kindness to, transformed as the Beast and with a new name Adrian he sets out finding himself and love - with hope of breaking a curse curing the beast finding beauty once again.

I loved how this was written. Had humor, emotional tugs, growth, and life lessons, and happily ever after - what else can you ask for in a fairy tale?
