The Lovereading4Kids comment
Shortlisted for the Branford Boase Award 2007.
Teenagers, particularly boys will empathise completely with the hero in Beast even though he may not be your typical teenager as he's always in trouble with his foster parents and with the police. His relationship with this monstrous creature of the deep is brilliantly told and full of intrigue and suspense and the secrets he keeps are cleverly revealed to keep you on the edge of your seat throughout. As with some of our books chosen for teenage readers this one will be enjoyed just as much by adults. (12+)
Whilst being a tough read this story offers a sensitive portrayal of what it’s like be in care and is incredibly touching. The author balances black humour, farce and emotional truth – a real achievement. The plot is well constructed and full of suspense that keeps you reading.
Beast by Ally Kennen
In the depths of a reservoir lives a monstrous creature. Its existence is unknown to anyone except the teenage boy who feeds it. Now the creature has grown huge, and its rusting cage can't hold it much longer. Stephen is a boy with many secrets, and the Beast is the biggest. His efforts to free himself of the Beast make him a hero.
