I am a beast.

A beast. Not quite wolf or bear, gorilla or dog but a horrible new creature who walks upright--a creature with fangs and claws and hair springing from every pore. I am a monster.

You think I''m talking fairy tales? No way. The place is New York City. The time is now. It''s no deformity, no disease. And I''ll stay this way forever--ruined--unless I can break the spell.

Yes, the spell, the one the witch in my English class cast on me. Why did she turn me into a beast who hides by day and prowls by night? I''ll tell you. I''ll tell you how I used to be Kyle Kingsbury, the guy you wished you were, with money, perfect looks, and the perfect life. And then, I''ll tell you how I became perfectly . . . beastly.

Annotation:
A modern retelling of "Beauty and the Beast" that is humorous, thoughtful, and provocative, this young adult novel explores how a popular and shallow boy learns to look within for the first time in his life.

But when he crosses the wrong girl, he is cursed and becomes a beast. The only way back to humanity is through true love, which is hard for a guy who can't leave the house in daylight. Alex Finn is also the author of BREATHING UNDERWATER.A modern retelling of "Beauty and the Beast" that is humorous, thoughtful, and provocative, this young adult novel explores how a popular and shallow boy learns to look within for the first time in his life.
