by Alex Flinn

A modern twist on the "Beauty and the Beast" fairy tale. Kyle seems to have everything: good looks, money, charm, and popularity. Unfortunately he is also majorly self-centered and narcissistic. As a cruel joke, he invites an unpopular girl to the prom and plans to humiliate her in front of the whole school. What he doesn't expect is that she is really a powerful witch. As payback for his cruel ways, she curses him by stealing his gorgeous looks and turning him into a hideous beast. Kyle's only hope of reversing the curse is to find true love and be kissed. But who could ever love a beast? Soon to be a movie, this book is a thrilling update to the classic story.
