I loved the original story, and wasn’t sure if the modern setting would work. In the end.. Yes, I loved it though there were some things that I just found weird. For one the whole drug use/drug thing. I just felt it was weird, it doesn’t fit with the Rapunzel story.
Also the fact that I was disappointed in the big twist, aka Mama is Daniëlle Greenwood’s mom and thus Rachel’s grandmother, I already found it out quite soon, various things just pointed to that direction. Also the last part weeping over a rusty pipe? Wait what? And that is the magical thing to do to stop a plant used for drugs?????
Other than that the book was really good, I loved the characters, I loved the extra stories (Wyatt’s story, but also others).
Overall this was a book I am sure I will buy in Paperback, to add it to my collection. It deserves a place there.
