5.0 out of 5 stars Lives Intertwined, June 23, 2010
This review is from: Tangled (Hardcover)
Jena, Dakota, Skye, and Owen have issues. So when they all end up at a resort in the Caribbean, appropriately named Paradise, you would think that they would use the time to try to "fix" the things about themselves that have always held them back. You would think that a place so beautiful, like Paradise, would give them all a little perspective.

But not until each one returns home from Paradise, do they realize just how great of an impact it's had for them. Jenna, for one, realizes that she doesn't have to be the eager-beaver wallflower that hides in the shadows of the more beautiful/rich/popular girls in her life. She has strength, and it all begins with loving herself. Dakota sees that even though everyone thinks he's a super-jerk, maybe that's not how he wants to act anymore...maybe he really can change. Maybe it all starts with one simple act. Owen learns that, sometimes, a leap of faith is all it takes to rock your world, and shatter the weak image he's carried around since he was born. And for Skye, she realizes that the one thing she's always been missing from her life is the kind of thing that no amount of money, fame, or beauty in the world could replace: family. For Skye, giving it all up means nothing, when you get back something so much larger.

Although each character in Tangled meets for only a brief period of time, Carolyn Mackler expertly and seamlessly weaves their lives together. Without a doubt, she shows us how a chance, brief meeting can change our lives forever, without us even knowing it. Tangled is a must read for anyone ready to make a change, or take that leap of faith.
