Waiting on Wednesday: Towering




OMG What do I have to do to get a copy of this?!
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 snow fall 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. 

Expected Release: May 14, 2013
Published:  HarperTeen 
Format: Hardcover, 304 pages

  1. I love fairytale readaptations too. Have you ever read Robin McKinley's Beauty: A Retelling of the Story of Beauty and the Beast. It's beautifully written and you might enjoy it :)
