Beastly: by Alex Flinn

This is a twist on the story of the Beauty and the Beast.  I initially read the story after seeing the movie trailer for the movie coming out in March.  It look very intreging.I have to say, however, that the movie is not the same in the book in that the Beast is truly a beast in the book and is a tattoed guy in the movie. 
If you know the story from the disney movie, then you basically know the story.  Although this is an updated version taking place in New York with teens dealing with parent issues.

My thoughts:
Even though I was familiar with the story and knew what was going to happen, in general, throughout the story...I still couldn't put it down!  I liked the way the story flowed and felt vested with the characters. 

My rating:
4 stars
