Beauty

 

Author: Robin McKinley

Genre: Fantasy/Romance/Young Adult

Beauty isn’t. She was when she was small, but now that she is older, Beauty is more of an ironic nickname than anything else. When her family loses all its money and they have to move to a small house in the country, Beauty adjsuts very well. She grows very fond of roses – but little did she know that asking for one would have such dire consequences.

This book was AWESOME! Granted, it takes a little bit to get ‘into’ it. But I was SO pleased that you never met any witches/warlocks or anything (they are briefly mentioned, but that’s it). It was so much better than Robin McKinley’s other retelling, “Rose Daughter” – I was very pleased!  There was no language and really no sexual content (she and the beast fall in love, of course, and her sisters marry).

If you want my complete, honest opinion about this book – it was one of the most beautiful books I’ve ever read. And that’s saying something.
