This book is about girl named Rapunzel, who lives in a castle with giant walls around it. She lives there with her mother, Mother Gothel. There are guards everywhere, covering every entrance. One day, she climbs over the wall, and finds out that Mother Gothel, is not her real mother at all. And that, the world outside those walls, is dry, and fruitless. Mother Gothel puts her in a giant tower, and keeps her there for 4 years. One day though, she escapes, and sets off on a journey to free her real mother. On the way, she meets a man named Jack, who helps her, and teaches her about the outside world.
Calamity Jack (the sequel)
I would recommend this book to anyone who likes to read fractured fairy tales.
