Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 8 Up—In this reimagined tale, Rapunzel is a strong, inquisitive young woman who is good with a knife (as in throwing it in self-defense) and artistic and wants nothing more than to learn to read and be able to get married. Sir Gerek, one of Duke Wilhelm's knights, teaches her to read and also causes her to question her mother's overprotectiveness. He also helps her find work in Wilhelm's castle, where Rapunzel learns secrets that unravel everything she has been taught to believe. She is resourceful and clever, a combination that will appeal to contemporary listeners, who will relate to Rapunzel's quest for self-identity and independence. Jude Mason does a fine job bringing Dickerson's story to life. VERDICT An engaging tale for fans of reimagined fairy tales, strong female characters, and medieval adventure and intrigue. ["Fans of the author's previous works will adore this new tale": SLJ 10/15 review of the Thomas Nelson book.]—Cynthia Ortiz, Hackensack High School, NJ


'A masterful retelling of “Rapunzel,” Dickerson not only captures the essence of Rapunzel’s story, but she provides is with a unique rendition, depicting Rapunzel as a very strong character. This story is well presented with beautiful imagery and passion.' - 4 starred (RT Book Reviews)

'Dickerson breathes life into the age-old story of Rapunzel, blending it seamlessly with the other YA novels she has written in this time and place.' (Booklist)
