I really enjoyed this and it was a first for me. I've never read a fairytale re-work and I wasn't sure how it would go down but for me, the modern day twist on Beauty & the Beast just worked. There was still the magic of the fairytale but with all American teenagers, drug dealer dads and Brooklyn. The reason I read this book was because I wanted to see the movie and a friend of mine advised me to read it first and I'm glad I did as I probably would never have chosen it myself and therefore would have missed out on a great read.

I also now would like to read Beastly: Lindy's Diarywhich is Lindy's POV written in diary format.
