Beastly by Alex Flinn - Download as Word Doc .doc), PDF File .pdf), Text File . txt) or read online. A hapless witch, a bad boy turned beast, and his true love (or is she?) take to a Manhattan high school in Alex Flinn's New York Times #1 bestselling series. Alex Flinn loves fairy tales and is the author of the #1 New York Times bestselling Beastly, a spin on Beauty and the Beast that was named a VOYA Editor's.
It is a retelling of the fairy tale Beauty and the Beast set in modern-day New York City from the view of the beast. Flinn researched many versions of the Beauty and the Beast story to write her book.
Many of these are playfully alluded to in portions of the book, particularly the chat room transcripts in which the character of Kyle talks to other teens who have been transformed into creatures. Kyle Kingsbury, rich, handsome and popular, plays a mean practical joke on an outcast girl in his class, who is really a witch named Kendra in disguise.
The witch then curses him for his cruelty. He starts to turn into a beast; however, because he performed a small act of kindness shortly before his transformation when he gave an unwanted rose corsage to a girl working a ticket booth, she gives him two years to break the spell, or remain a beast forever. The only way he can turn back to normal is if he truly loves a girl and gets her to love him in return, proving the love with a kiss. Kendra later offers Kyle further aid by giving him a magic mirror that shows him whomever he wishes to see.
He is locked in a mansion-like apartment by his shallow, image-obsessed father. His only company is his housekeeper, Magda, and, at his request, a blind tutor named Will. After a year of being in this state, and trying and failing to find love, Kyle changes his name to Adrian to reflect his feelings of being a completely different person from the conceited, materialistic boy he used to be.
When a robber stumbles into his garden Adrian offers him a deal; he won't report the robber to the police if the robber brings Adrian his daughter, Linda. She is Adrian's last chance to break the spell before his two years are up. Adrian realizes that Linda is the same girl to whom he gave the rose corsage.
He fixes up a room for her, leaving roses and books for her to amuse herself with. When she arrives, she at first wants nothing to do with him as she feels he kidnapped her. As time passes, she slowly warms up to him and he finds himself falling in love with her.
Beastly by Alex Flinn
The two begin to have tutoring sessions together and during winter they go to a lodge. Shortly before the last year is up, Linda wishes to see her father once more. Adrian lets her see him with the magic mirror and she finds that he has become sick through drug use.
Adrian quickly lets her go to him and offers for her to return to the apartment in the spring if she desires, this time as a friend and not a prisoner.
On the last day of the second year, Adrian looks for Linda in the mirror and sees her being dragged into a building by a man. He rushes to her rescue and is shot in the process. As he lays dying, he asks Linda for a kiss.
She kisses him, breaking the spell and turns him back to normal. He explains everything to Linda and the two go back and live in the apartment together. Adrian had also made a deal with Kendra, and because of which, Will regains his sight and Magda is allowed to return to her family. Kendra reveals that she is Magda, punished to remain a servant forever because of her careless spellwork but she can now return home as well.
This story gives an exquisite moral lesson that,"Love doesn't have eyes for external ugliness,it only seeks internal beauty"   Beastly: Lindy's Diary[ edit ] This book is written as a diary showing the events of Beastly from Lindy's perspective, along with a few extra things. This was an original e-book and was also published as part of a special edition of Beastly in It begins with Kendra's original family and we get to see when she found out she was a witch.
Then we see the story of Emma and follow her as we learn about her stepsister, who turns out to be manipulative. Kendra tries to help, but as usual, magic can sometimes be unpredictable.
A Junior Library Guild selection for , the novel is a modern version of Sleeping Beauty,  in which Talia, princess of Euphrasia, touches a spindle, falling into a deep sleep for three-hundred years. 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. All rights reserved. By Alex Flinn. HarperTeen Publication date: October download ePub. List price:. I am a beast.

It's beautiful. It is in two viewpoints, Wyatt, a teen who moves from Long Island after a tragedy, only to hear a strange voice, calling him into the wilderness, and Rachel, a girl who is locked in a tower.
Want to introduce yourself? At the end, Kyle finds out everything about the witch, but lets her go as a part of the deal they made earlier. In a way, he reminded me of a young Anthony Zacchara, the crazy NYC mobster from General Hospital , who used to coo over his rose garden. Thanks for speaking up, Silent — pardon the pun.
