The Beast Within: A Tale of Beauty's Prince
By Serena Valentino
A cursed prince sits alone in a secluded castle. Few have seen him, but those who claim they have say his hair is wild and nails are sharp--like a beast's! But how did this prince, once jovial and beloved by the people, come to be a reclusive and bitter monster? And is it possible that he can ever find true love and break the curse that has been placed upon him?
"It was true: everyone in the village thought she was queen for reading so much, and she didn't exactly behave like other girls. So what if she was more interest in reading about princesses than being on herself?" p 174
Clearly you can guess that I picked this up because of the new movie... in fact in the last month or so I've been all about all Beauty and the Beast retellings and additions.

This is clearly an MG book, and the story was a bit disappointing from Disney... but for a younger audience it was alright.
