Book Review: Rapunzel Untangled by Cindy Bennett

*****--5 Stars.
Told that she must be indoors at all times, Rapunzel feels trapped in the huge mansion where she lives. But when school demands to allow her access to the Internet, she discovers Facebook and becomes friends with Fane, a local teenager who changes her whole world. This story will have you entangled from beginning to end.

My Review: I loved this modern version!! Rapunzel is a girl who believes that if she comes in contact with anyone--or leaves her tower rooms, for that matter--she will die from her disease. Her mother, Gothel, believes that Rapunzel should be educated, but doesn't want to take the time to figure out technology, so...while doing an Internet search for a Biology assignment, she stumbles onto Facebook and a whole new world opens us to her--one that includes friends.

Fane is just great!! I love how brave and funny he is. He makes it his own personal mission to introduce Rapunzel to things she's been missing out on.

I loved the new take on an old favorite. This is one story that I can't wait to read again...and again.

Content: some talk of witchcraft; mild violence; mild kissing.
