Beastly by Alex Flinn

Beastly by Alex Flinn
304 pages

Amazing fantasy about a gorgeous conceited man who is turned into a beast so that he may be as ugly on the outside as he is on the outside. He is described quite like the Beast in the famous Disney movie, Beauty and the Beast...covered in hair. He is given two years to find someone to fall in love with him, he in love with her, and of course, to proclaim their love with a kiss. Wonderful modern twist to this old fairy tale...but I have a question. I know they made a movie out of this, and I truly cannot wait to see it. And I know they change details for movies. But they totally changed the looks of both characters...completely. I still don't have a problem with that. What I do have a problem with is this...

Why does the cover of my book look like this? In the book, the man is a hairy monster, and the girl is a redheaded Plain Jane kind of girl. If you wanted to change it for the movie, fine.  But don't mess with the cover!
