Beastly by Alex Flinn

Beastly is the story of Kyle Kingsbury -- gorgeous, rich, and the son of a famous anchorman. He is also cruel, mean, vain, and selfish.

This is a classic tale of beauty and beast. After insulting a witch, she places a curse on him, transforming him into a beast. Can he ever overcome his "beastliness" to find love in time?

Alex Flinn takes classic fairy tales and puts a modern and fresh outlook on them; her books are well written and entertaining. I am not saying she recreates the tales to where they are unpredictable and a different story all together, but that is not what she is trying to do. In my opinion, she is trying to take a classic and put a modern and fresh outlook on them, and that's what she does well.
