Towering By: Alex Flinn

Rachel has been locked in a tower with only her mother as company for as long as she remembers. Her mother says it is not safe to go out that someone will get her.  She also has hair that has to be cut each week for it grows so quickly.  Wyatt is trying to escape his life and the death of his best friends.  He comes to live with a strange old woman, who lost her daughter many years ago.  When Wyatt starts to hear singing in the forest he knows he must find out who it is.  Neither of them are expecting each other and yet they are at the  same time.  Each of them needs each other and together they can save themselves.

I love retelling of fairy tales and Alex Flinn always provides great new twists on the classic stories. I loved this book as much as her others and thought it was perfect.  I enjoyed the focus on not just Rachel but on Wyatt and how he was in need of
rescuing too. Great read!

I borrowed this from the public library
