Beastly - Alex Flinn This is a wonderful young adult retelling of Beauty and the Beast which has been modernized perfectly. This is an easy to read story that should be familiar to most teens. There are drugs mentioned since Beauty's father is a drug addict, but the mention is a negative one. Just a few kisses, so nothing much to worry about on the sex front either. You can see Linda bloom like one of Kyle/Adrian's roses as the story develops. I know the upcoming movie (due 7/2010) is going to be wonderful. The actors chosen really look just as the author describes them.I think this should appeal to everyone who loves a good romance. Again, now I can't wait for the movie! I am definitely going to look for more books by this author!
