    The Beast

    The Beast by Kennen, Ally is something to be read for if you like science fiction. The Beast is a great book with a really good story that will make you wanting to keep on reading it. Stephen has been sent to foster care ever since he was little. Stephen had finally started getting use to the family but now he is almost eighteen and is now at the age limit. Now that he is leaving his foster house he needs to think of what to do with his biggest problem. His beast, which is a twelve foot long crocodile, that he has been raising up ever since it was little. Lying to his whole family that his beast had died, it is now locked up behind the reservoir in a cage, with little water and rusty bars that look like it will break anytime. Stephen has been buying food for it ever since and now he is low on money. As time goes by it grow hungrier and hungrier. If Stephen goes back to the cage all that separates Stephen and his crocodile is those rusty bars left. What do you think Stephen should do with his crocodile? Or will Stephen even be able to do anything to his beast.

    If you like the Sci-fi channel offered by your local cable company, you will want to read BEAST by Ally Kennen. Its mysterious beginning will grab your attention, and the rest of the book will have you on the edge of your seat. <BR/><BR/>Stephen has been living in foster homes for years. The family he has been with the past four years hasn't been half bad, but he's reached the age limit for foster care and is about to be sent packing. He's got to get packed, find a decent job, and if that's not enough, he needs to take care of a "little" problem he's been dealing with for years. <BR/><BR/>It's the Beast - a twelve-foot crocodile he's raised from a baby. His father gave it to him six years ago for his birthday. No one knows the thing is still alive. Stephen has been keeping it in a watery cage near the local reservoir. Now that he is leaving his foster home, he's got to do something with the Beast. Its cage is becoming dangerously unsafe and finding food is an increasing problem. What can he do? Should he let someone else know about the creature? Can anyone else even help? <BR/><BR/>Kennen's early chapters leave room for speculation that soon change to a frantic, desperate tone. BEAST contains the stuff of nightmares and is sure to entertain even the most reluctant reader.
