What a great short read!

This is a complete story (well written too!) that is told in a short form. However, the story is told without being rushed or cut short. I love how it was a twisted fairy tale... a definite upgrade to overdone tales. Also, it goes above and beyond to keep the audience intrigued and guessing what will be next. Like other reviews, I didn't see the ending coming! I grew to like each of the characters. This story is very clever and worth the short amount of time you'll spend reading it.

Parents: I would say junior high and up. Nothing is wildy inappropriate but there are things a younger reader might not get.

JUVENILE!

Must be one of her earlier works it was more suitable for young people. Pleasant read but skipped through could not stay with it. If you feel like revisiting your youth this is the way to go if not move on.

    Pretty good

    I almost stopped reading it within the first few pages but I'm glad I didn't. I may not have loved the writing but the story was clever & enjoyable. I recommend it.

    Good

    I found it entertaining. It was a pretty quick read, having only 170 pages. Overall, it was an interesting take on a classic story.

    Odd story but interesting

    Since this is a fairy tale complete with wizards-- fairy godparents and other made up people ---remember these points as you try to make sense of the story

    Go for It!!!

    I really didn't mind this book. i thought it was pretty funny how the girl(Jay) was the Beast in the story and the boy(Alex) was the pretty one. It was a big twist when you find out Alex wasn't even human.

    fairy tale, not very well written

    got the sample for free, and the writing was stilted. interesting concept, but not worth persuing in my opinion.
