My Review: I have been drifting away from re-tellings, especially in YA, I have been burned a few too many times. I did however receive this one in a book box and I have a soft spot for all things Beauty and the Beast so thought I would give it a shot. I ended up really enjoying this book. I like the world we are sucked into and the characters are unique. It was also so refreshing seeing diversity represented in physical ability. There are definitely so pacing issues, it does seem to slow way down in momentum at various points and there is little in the way of action or danger until the last 75 or so pages. While it was a slow moving story, and clearly a romance driven book, it still really pulled me in and was an easy page turner.
