Rapunzel Untangled by Cindy C Bennett

5 Stars

I liked the story and the twists on the old story to make new and different. Though I would have liked another chapter or even a long paragraph more of the ending but I wont say what I want or why I want. But I am not the writer or editor and could not come up with such a good detailed story.
By the title name you probably know the basics of the story. But the finer details are what makes the story. The interaction between characters make you care or hate the characters. The computer,internet,facebook,cell phones and movies on the computer bring it into the modern world.
Gothel was told that she would have a little girl with long blond hair and one day she saw the baby with long blond hair than she ever saw and new what she needed to do.
Rapunzel lived in a tower room with one window on the third floor, she had a bathroom,a room where her computer, small kitchen and exercise room. She never went out of her suite of rooms. The only visitor was her mom Gothel. Rapunzel had a illness that if she got around germs it would kill her. A cook cooked her food but she had never met her did not even know her name. She was 17 and had really long hair and brushed it 72 times each day. Her mom came at 6:00 to visit her everyday.
One day on the computer she found facebook by accident and looking for kids in her town she saw a picture of a boy named Fane. She clicked on friend request. She was not supposed to be on the computer except for homework. Only to read books for schoolwork.
She did her lessons by herself. Rapunzel did not even know her address.
Fane thought the girl on facebook was different and when he heard the name of the house she lived in thought she was joking. Then he believed her and they would chat daily in secret.
I did not want to stop reading the story till the end. The story makes sense in its own way. I have to admit I was rooting for Rapunzel to break the rules her mother made for her.
I will look for more stories by Cindy to read in the future. I was given this ebook to read and asked in return to give honest review by Netgalley.
