Publisher Description

New York Times #1 bestselling author Alex Flinn reimagined the fairy tale Beauty and the Beast in Beastly and gave a twist to the story of Sleeping Beauty in A Kiss in Time. Now with her gothic and darkly romantic YA novel Towering, Alex Flinn retells the tale of Rapunzel.

When Rachel was taken to live in a tower by a woman she calls Mama, she was excited. She felt like a princess in a castle. But many years later, Rachel knows her palace is really a prison, and begins to plan her escape. She is encouraged by the speed with which her golden hair has been growing. It's gotten long enough to reach the ground. And she's begun dreaming of a green-eyed man. Could he be out there in the world? Is he coming to save her? Or will she find a way to save herself?

Hi There 12 ,

Beautifully Written Story

The author manages to stay very close to Rapunzel and blends it perfectly with real life issues many teens face. A corrupted teen who lost his best friend about a year prior to the story's plot turns a young girl's life into a living fairytale.
Beautifully written; highly recommend.

Awesome!!!

The First Book I've read with a perfect balance between reality and fantasy. It has what all books need a little more of, romance, adventure, not so much action we don't know whats happening, and family. I most definitely would recommend it to anyone into fantasy.
