If you don’t take the time to think through your words, you end up being rude just as often as not. Little to no connection with the love interests, and at times, the characters spoke with a dialect of regency England rather than China.

Maybe Prince Pascal should be the one to reconsider to avoid war? Is there a chance to translate this book into Spanish, so in Argentina we can read it too? I did enjoy the little twist: Well…Golden is totally a complete different retelling.

However, things begin to change when Rapunzel reaches the age of Quite a bit of fun and a surprisingly radical tale for one so often stuck up in a tower. I was enjoying it very much and I ran into a cuss word. Why did Cendrillon try to make him feel bad for thinking about it?
The friendship between Raoul and Rilla was wonderful and the fact that there was no real romantic interest between them was also really refreshing.
She makes a bargain with him and his wife. An goldwn twist in the story. Cameron has one husband and three cats, and is the author of over a dozen young adult novels. I feel as if one of the friend’s being in love with another had gotten to be far too overused. Such a fun read!
