Towering By Alex Flinn

Title: Towering
Author: Alex Flinn
Publisher: Harper Teen
Hardcover: 293
Publication Date: May 14th 2013
At first, I merely saw his face, his hands on the window ledge. Then, his whole body as he swung himself through the window. Only I could not see what he swung on.Until, one day, I told my dream self to look down. And it was then that I saw. He had climbed on a rope. I knew without asking that the rope had been one of my own tying.Rachel is trapped in a tower, held hostage by a woman she’s always called Mama. Her golden hair is growing rapidly, and to pass the time, she watches the snowfall and sings songs from her childhood, hoping someone, anyone, will hear her.
Wyatt needs time to reflect or, better yet, forget about what happened to his best friend, Tyler. That’s why he’s been shipped off to the Adirondacks in the dead of winter to live with the oldest lady in town. Either that, or no one he knows ever wants to see him again.Dani disappeared seventeen years ago without a trace, but she left behind a journal that’s never been read, not even by her overbearing mother…until now.

Alex Flinn is a unique writer. I like how she uses her imagination to retell the classics. Towering for example is a retell of Rapunzel… And I liked it.

Rachel, AKA Rapunzel had lived a secluded life for as long as she can remember. Yet there is something about her that’s unique. 
Wyatt is a young man who’s dealing with a life changing lost and if possible Wyatt wants to go back in time to fixed a wrong that he blames himself for.

But, Fate, the meddling bitch has something else planned for both Rachel and Wyatt.

Flinn’s Towering was full of twist and mystery lace with suspense and humor. It was enduring and it had the purest kind of love. A nice change from adult novels, vamps and shifters...  a modern day myth. I enjoyed this journey… and I,m looking forward to your next adventure! Well-done Flinn.
