It’s here, it’s here, it’s heeeeere! Beast by Brie Spangler is finally in stores, and I am crying with all the happiness. I’ve been lucky enough to follow along on Brie’s wild publication journey, as this lovely lady is my BFF. I am crazy proud of her and crazy proud of Beast, and if you haven’t pre-ordered a copy yet, then I hope you’re rushing out today to pick one up!
To celebrate, I’ve put together a collection of new desktop wallpapers featuring the STUNNING cover art for Beast! But first, here’s more about the book.
Tall, meaty, muscle-bound, and hairier than most throw rugs, Dylan doesn’t look like your average fifteen-year-old, so, naturally, high school has not been kind to him. To make matters worse, on the day his school bans hats (his preferred camouflage), Dylan goes up on his roof only to fall and wake up in the hospital with a broken leg—and a mandate to attend group therapy for self-harmers.
Dylan vows to say nothing and zones out at therapy—until he meets Jamie. She’s funny, smart, and so stunning, even his womanizing best friend, JP, would be jealous. She’s also the first person to ever call Dylan out on his self-pitying and superficiality. As Jamie’s humanity and wisdom begin to rub off on Dylan, they become more than just friends. But there is something Dylan doesn’t know about Jamie, something she shared with the group the day he wasn’t listening. Something that shouldn’t change a thing. She is who she’s always been—an amazing photographer and devoted friend, who also happens to be transgender. But will Dylan see it that way?
