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 that 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?

Just finished Towering by Alex Flinn what an amazing book. I really love her writing style. This story is really character driven as one of the main characters Wyatt tries to solve a mystery in a small town that he just moved into. Even though I really loved this book and would recommend it to anyone who loves a good fairy tale retelling. It might not be for everyone since by the end of the book there are a lot of questions that are left unanswered. 4 out 5 diamonds
