I am about a quarter of the way through reading Beast. Here’s what I have to say so far.
- The premise of the book is odd
It’s rare for me to read a male main character. He reminds me of a werewolf from Twilight, honestly. He’s really big, and furry. Unfortunately, he doesn’t turn into a werewolf (yet).
- “Therapy” was not what I thought
The idea behind the book is that he has to go to self-harm group therapy, and he meets a girl, Jamie, there. I thought the book would be a lot about therapy, but so far, it’s not.
- He has strange friends
His best friend, JP, really just likes him because he beats people up for JP. The girls make fun of him for being so hairy. It’s a strange split from what you typically see in a YA book.
Look for the review next week!
