A retelling of Beauty and the Beast, Beauty follows a plain-looking girl as she takes the place of her father to be held captive by a hideous, but kind, beast. Over time their friendship grows, though every night when he asks her to marry him, she declines. At times the book drags on and includes a bit too much description. It is a very sweet story and tells the fairy tale in a unique way. I recommend it to teens and adults.
