I think that if a book makes you cry, it should get at least four stars! Because in order for me to cry I have to be totally involved with the story, and have fallen in love with the characters! I cried near the end of this book! It really made me think about how lucky I am.Besides that I really wanted to read this book because I thought it was a retelling of Beauty and the Beast, which I absolutely love! Which it kind of was, but it was so much more! It was a story of tragedy, confidence, love, and finding yourself.The characters were amazing, I fell in love with every single one of the main characters! I wanted Scott to be my best friend, and Derek to be my boyfriend. I think the feelings that Beth had at the beginning of the book are very common, especially for Teens. I really appreciated this story and I hope it will encourage all kinds of people!Overall an amazing book, with so many messages! You have to check it out!
