    It s hard to feel interest in characters who are so shallow and dull An interesting concept, but a book lacking in any real depth or beauty or emotion.

    Just like with Nerve by Jeanne Ryan, I feel there are too many below average YA books around This is a retelling of Beauty and the Beast The fact that I already knew the story behind it had nothing to do with how boring this book was The characters were stereotypical and not w...
