Book Review #14
Letters From Rapunzel by Sara Lewis Holmes
Rating: one star (out of four)
After finding a torn up letter in her father's handwriting to a mysterious "box #5667" Cadence decides that maybe if she writes this person a letter she will figure out why her father is sick. Likening herself to Rapunzel, Cadence labels everything in her life like it was in a fairy tale.
The cover of this book was very misleading, I thought it might be a fantasy novel, but it is actually contemporary fiction. Cadence is slightly immature in her style in writing and the only reason I finished this book was because it was short and had a large font. I was not overly impressed with the writing style, but thought that Sara Lewis Holmes had some imaginative snippets that could have been spectacular if they had been in a different setting. Over all, I thought this book was on the side of pathetic, but because of the rare "gem" of insight, it wasn't a total waste of my time.
