Review: Rapunzel Untangled by Cindy C. Bennett

Rapunzel Untangled
Rapunzel is not your average teenager. For one thing, she has a serious illness that keeps her inside the mysterious Gothel Mansion. And for another, her hair is 15 feet long. Not to mention that she’s also the key to ultimately saving the world from certain destruction. But then she meets a boy named Fane, who changes all she has ever known, and she decides to risk everything familiar to find out who she really is. Filled with romance, adventure, and mystery, Rapunzel Untangled is one story you won’t want to put down. Discover the true meaning of love and friendship in this modern twist to the classic fairytale.

My Thoughts:

Wow!  Ok, understatement of the year, I know!  Words escape me on how much I enjoyed this book.  This is such an amazing twist on the fairy tale most of us have grown up with.  The modernism makes the book easier to relate to.  I love the darker aspect of the book when it came to how demented Gothel was.  Cindy C. Bennett continues to write characters and stories that leave me enraptured.  She knows how to tell a great story that’s suitable for young and mature readers.  Rapunzel isn't your typical damsel in distress either.  Once she figures out her circumstances she takes control of her own destiny.  Then you have Fane.  Who wouldn't fall in love with Fab Fane?!  He’s caring and funny.  If you’re like me, and have loved the new faces authors are giving those old fairy tales, you will love this story!  I would also recommend reading ALL of Cindy’s other books.  She is such a phenomenal author.
