Towering | [Alex Flinn]

Towering

When Rachel was taken to live in a tower by a woman she calls Mama, she was excited. She felt like a princess in a castle. But many years later, Rachel knows her palace is really a prison, and begins to plan her escape. She is encouraged by the speed that her golden hair has been growing. It’s gotten long enough to reach the ground. And she’s begun dreaming of a green-eyed man. Could he be out there in the world? Is he coming to save her? Or will she find a way to save herself?

    "I was sadly disappointed :("

    I am a big Alex Flinn fan! I've reread beastly and a kiss in time each at least 3 times!! And I'm a HUGE fan of retold fairy tails so I was very excited for this book!

    But I found it to be:.. A bit doll and also totally random and messed up.
    For one, the romance was horrible! You know I'm the old diseny princess movies, how they meet and two seconds later they are in love... That's exactly how it happens in the book!😐 not cool man!

    And than there's th hole drugs circle thing... Like whaaaaat?
    I really didn't like how they handled the whole boy meets girl, and how they just magically can hear each other.. Seems a bit much.

    But I have to admit here were are some good parts..
    I likes the whole mystery, the dead daughters journal holds secrets.

    I suppose there are some good things about the book... But I'd sooner suggest you go reread Beastly or a Kiss in time rather than buying Towering.. It was okay but I kinda wish I didn't bother listenig to it!
