The Curse Girl by Kate Avery Ellison

When her father tries to steal magic from the cursed mansion outside her town, seventeen-year-old Bee is the one who becomes a prisoner of the "beast" who lives there. But the so-called monster, Will, isn't anything like she expected. He's the same age as she is, he doesn't have claws or fangs ... and contrary to the local legend, he's really, really handsome.

Well, maybe the whole "beast" thing is a metaphor, because he's a total jerk.

Bee's only goal is to escape, but there are some major complications--like the fact that she has to break Will's curse first.

The witch who cursed Will left him a riddle to solve and an hourglass to track the time. And although she'd rather eat dirt than help Will, Bee has to work with him to figure out the riddle, or she's going to remain a prisoner forever.

As time goes on, Bee discovers there is more to Will than first meets the eye. She might even be falling in love with him. But the hourglass is almost empty, and they're running out of time.

Can they solve a baffling riddle and break the witch's curse before everything is lost?

I absolutely loved this book! Not only was it a retelling of one of my all time favorite fairytales, it stood out more than I expected. Bee and Will were a hoot and I loved Kate Ellison's take on the witch and the curse. I had been toying with the idea of doing my own retelling of this classic, but reading this blew that thought right out of my mind. Ellison's take is perfect in my estimation. I wouldn't have done anything differently, well maybe a few things, but they are so insubstantial I would be writing the same book. lol. So if you are like me and love Beauty and the Beast, especially the Disney version, you have to read this book. I laughed so many times at the natural feeling banter. Bee became real to me. And as an author, I can't think of any highter praise than that. Great job Kate! I'll be looking into your other books for sure. I loved your style.
