This book had four retelling of fairy tales, and they all included our favourite character Kendra. The one problem I had with this book is how quickly all the female characters fell in love. I found that a bit unrealistic. If you enjoyed Alex Flinn’s previous books and liked the character Kendra, you will probably enjoy Beheld. In this book we got to see a bit more of Kendra’s life and the new challenges she had to face. We also met new characters but not all of them are likable, and I did not connect with them as I usually did in the past. The cover was beautiful, and it connected with the stories in the book. This book was not as good as her other books, but it was enjoyable. Most of the romance was cute and heartwarming. This book was fun to read. It was filled with humor, romance, and excitement in the fairy tales. It was nice being able to get back with Kendra and I hope the author does not stop writing about her. The stories were about internal beauty and how we shouldn’t judge them by their looks. I give this book a four out of five. @Nat of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

The story started off great. It was exciting and I could not wait to see if Kendra and her true love were going to end up together. Then the story went on and on about other characters I had not interest in. The female characters kept making really bad decisions. For example if you married a man and he said that you could not see him in the light because her was cursed would you? Your happy and in love. The wife waits till he falls asleep and uses a candle to see his face. While, she is doing this she even refers to the myth of Cupid and Psyche. She already knew what the consequence would be, but did it anyway. I started to lose interest in the book after this, but I kept on reading. By the time I read the last chapter I was still not satisfied. The author should have included more about Kendra.
