Goodreads Summary

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.

Author Interview

Mindy:  As a reader, I'm always interested to find out what types of books authors like to read themselves. You write a variety of books, but what genre is your favorite to read and why

Cindy:  I tend to read YA books mostly. There are so many great ones available right now. The main reason I began writing YA is because it's what I was reading. Once in a while I'll venture off into horror, thriller, romance, or other adult novels, but the bulk of what I read is YA. In fact, I just finished Warm Bodies, and am partly into Fight Club, which is definitely not YA, but still very interesting. I just beta-read three different YA books for other authors, and have a huge pile of TBR which are almost exclusively YA. I only wish I had more time to read, but it feels like such a guilty pleasure any more when I should be writing. That's what's great about long baths, long-lines to wait in, and long car rides - guilt free reading!

Thank you Cindy!

My Review

Rapunzel Untangled was very enjoyable.  I thought Rapunzel herself was a doll and although naive (of course she was naive, she has spent her whole life in a tower) she learns a lot about friendship, love, and herself.  I immediately loved Fane.  He's a very sweet guy and takes Rapunzel under his wing.  Helping her to question her strange upbringing and how sick she really is.

3 1/2 of out 5 stars.  This is a fast paced book with great characters, romance, and lots of heart.  The ending took a different turn I wasn't expecting, but it did not distract me from enjoying the book.
