Welcome to the Middle of the Road. This is a combined book review blog, one that is both cherished and prided over. We want everyone who comes to our page to find something of intrest to them, so when they walk away they are either satisfied or intrigued. We are both avid readers and have a passion about books that few of our other friends do. Both of us are happy to share our experiences in the book world and at times some goodies too. Enjoy your time here, and if you are anything like us, you could spend hours just wandering aimlessly through the world of books, just like a lazy afternoon down the Middle of the Road.

Beastly by: Alex Flinn

Beastly is the modern day version of "Beauty and the Beast". Alex Flinn did a terrific job writing this book. Even though we all know that there is a "happily ever after" at the end of The Beauty and the Beast, Ms. Flinn kept me turning the pages in this book. I didn't want to put it down for anything. She kept it very interesting.

Kyle Kingsbury was the perfect sophomore in a high scale school. He was the envy of all the guys and the crush of all the girls. He had perfect blonde hair and blue eyes, but he didn't have such a perfect attitude. He was very cruel to others just for fun.

Kendra didn't want to put a "spell" on Kyle so she gave him a chance to show that he wasn't evil...he failed the test so she had no choice. She transformed him into "the beast" and told him he had 2 years to find true love in order to break the spell.

Kyle thought that he was doomed to live the rest of his life a beast, until he found Lindy. Kyle fell in love with Lindy but never thought that she could love him back. Her father "gave" her to him to keep himself out of jail. She lived with Kyle, whom she knew as Adrian, and he did everything he could to keep her happy. Eventually he let her go back to her father.

-I will let you read the book to find out what happened next! **teehee**

This is a young adult book that I would recommend to anyone over the age of 13.
