Beastly by Alex Flinn (update)

Kyle is hot, rich, and totally obnoxious. He’s also the most popular kid at his elite New York City prep school, and he never passes up the opportunity to remind others of their lowly status.

When Kyle sets up Kendra, a scholarship student, to be publicly humiliated, he’s gone too far. Turns out Kendra has the power to knock him down a few pegs…to make him “beastly”…as unattractive outside as he is on the inside.

I really enjoyed this modern, twisted take on the Beauty and the Beast story. The movie version is scheduled to come out in March, but we all know the book is typically better!
