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 with which 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?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from absolutely awsome well I got to start off by saying I love love Alex Flinn she is one of my fav writers and as for towering it was awesome I loved how there was so much mystery in this book and there were drugs but a mystical drug and also how it was still set as a fairy talk and how she was in our time but was also in the old times and how Wyatt had something tragic happen it was a all right round awesome book give it 150 thumbs up
