Wayback Wednesday – Beastly by Alex Flinn

On Wednesday’s I thought I’d start reposting reviews of older books that our readers might not have read yet.  I thought I’d start with Beastly since this will be coming out as a new movie this coming March.  I’ve included a movie trailer at the bottom.

Beastly by Alex Flinn

For sure, it’s another take on “Beauty and the Beast,” but Flinn brings something new to her story, by making the two main characters teenagers at an exclusive prep school in New York City. Junior Kyle Kingsbury is so superficial and downright mean to his fellow students, that readers won’t be too sad when a goth-looking witch turns him into a werewolf type beast. He slowly transforms into a caring, thoughtful human being with the help of his blind tutor, housekeeper, and Lindy, a scholarship student from his old school. The changes in him and his relationship with Lindy make the book hard to put down, despite the happy ending we all know is coming.

Here’s the movie trailer you can see from home:
