All the Single Ladies: Unmarried Women and the Rise of an Independent Nation
Rebecca Traister
Beastly - Alex Flinn This was a fun, if not earthshaking modern retelling of the Beauty and the Beast story. This one is set in NYC, and told from the point of view of the Beast, a privileged private school teen boy who has more money than affection in his life until a fairy decides to take him down a peg. The modernization is fun, particularly the sections where he participates in an online chat room for transformed teens. The romance skirts the edge of soap opera a little closely for me, but it doesn't quite fall in and I bet my fourteen year old self would have loved it with all the schmalz of a fourteen year old heart.
