Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine where we talk about releases we are super excited about!
This week I am awaiting The Towering by Alex Flinn. I am a HUGE fairy tale retelling fan and it has been ages since anyone has done Rupunzel. Hopefully I will enjoy it.
The Towering goes on sale from Harper Teen May 14th 2013. Hardcover, 304 pages.
High in my tower I sit. I watch the birds fly below, the clouds float above, and the tall, green forest stretch to places I might never see.
Mama, who isn't my mother, has kept me hidden away for many years. My only companions, besides Mama, are my books—great adventures, mysteries, and romances that I long to make my reality. But I know that no one will come to save me—my life is not a fairy tale after all.
Well, at least no one has come so far. Recently, my hair has started to grow rapidly and it's now long enough to reach the bottom of the tower from my window. I've also had the strangest dreams of a beautiful, green-eyed man. When Mama isn't around, I plan my escape, even if it's just for a little while. There's something—maybe someone—waiting for me out there and it won't find me if I'm trapped here towering above it all.
