Rapunzel Untangled by Cindy Bennett

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.

I have to admit that I do love a good fairy tale re-telling.  Especially one that brings the story into the modern day.  I'm such a sucker for happily ever after's.

In this book, poor Rapunzel has spent her life in her tower room.  She believes that she has an immune deficiency problem that prevents her from coming into contact from anyone or anything from the outside world.  She is carefully guarded and watched.  Her mother has always told her that she will be the key to saving the world although Rapunzel has no idea what that really means.

The one thing Rapunzel has control over is her education.  One day she realizes that she can connect to the outside world without ever actually seeing anyone through her computer.  That is the day that the whole world changes for Rapunzel.  Thank goodness for that curious teenage mind!

Fane helps Rapunzel connect to the world.  He introduces her to all kinds of new ideas, foods and experiences.  Together they discover friendship, romance and even the dark lies that have surrounded Rapunzel her whole life.

This book has a little bit of everything.  A sweet romance, discovery and adventure and a bit of the dark side too.  I really enjoyed reading it and so did my teenage daughter.  Squeeky clean reading for everyone!

You can purchase Rapunzel Untangled on Amazon.

Cindy C Bennett was born and raised in beautiful Salt Lake City, growing up in the shadows of the majestic Rocky Mountains. She lives with her husband, two daughters, and two dogs. She also has two sons. She volunteers her time working with teen girls between the ages of 12-18, all of whom she finds to be beautiful, fascinating creatures. When she’s not writing, reading or answering emails she can often times be found riding her Harley through the beautiful canyons near her home (yes, I ride a Harley and no, you'd never know it to look at me!).
