The Curse Girl by Kate Avery Ellison

About the book:

When Bee is imprisoned in a magical, cursed house because of her father's selfish choices, she has just one plan... escape! But she must solve a riddle and help her fellow prisoners break the curse that binds them all before she can leave, and that is proving more difficult than she originally thought thanks to the bitter young master of the house, Will.

Will wants nothing to do with Bee or her help (and he certainly isn't planning on falling in love with her), but he might have underestimated just how determined and clever--and irresistible--she can be.

My Review:

A modern retelling of Beauty and the Beast, The Curse Girl has some twists and variations to the original story that keep you turning the pages!   I devoured the book in one sitting and it was such a great book, I couldn’t put it down!  I love retellings of fairy tales; I own many and have read many versions.  Kate Avery Ellison’s is among one of the best I have read! It was refreshing and a unique spin on a classic tale! The characters are fun, interesting and relatable!  I was pleasantly surprised by the depth of the emotions that were felt by the characters.  I would recommend this book to anyone who loves fairytales, fantasy, or young adult books.  I look forward to reading many more books from Kate Avery Ellison!
