"Beastly" is a beautiful and amazing story of second chances, the importance of who you are within, and love. A retelling of Beauty and Beast, Kyle is a shallow teenager who rules his high school with a cruel and iron fist. After witnessing his cruelty, a witch named Kendra, curses him to look like a beast unless he can find someone to love, who loves him, and seal it with a kiss- with a deadline of 2 years. His mother is gone and his father is even more shallow, kicking him out of his house and making him into a recluse with only a maid and blind tutor for company. It's really a stunning and believable transformation that occurs for him throughout the book. It follows the Disney version pretty closely, but I loved every second of it. I can't wait to continue with this series!!
