Written in 2009, this is my modernised, fractured version of the classic tale, Beauty and the Beast. It has four main parts, each told from the four main characters, and a prologue and an epilogue which bookend the main storyline with a fairy tale I put together to go along with the centre stories. Beauty takes the shape of Lily, a seven year old girl who has a special form of cancer, that is taking the place of the Beast. Uncle Albert plays the role of the Knight in the Fairy Tale sense. Cousin Belinda and Aunt Cassie each play a special part - each of them have a fragment of the role of the cancer/Beast, while also taking on the typical role of the jealous step-sibling and step-mother, found in fairy tales.
