Letters from Rapunzel: First Post (First Impressions)

Letters from RapunzelI am enjoying this book a lot so far. “Rapunzel” is a great character. I love her sense of humor and how engaging her personality is. Her homework answers are fascinating so far. I find her school struggles interesting because they are not unfamiliar. I remember being in her shoes (not doing homework because I couldn’t figure out the point, teachers who fought my parents on having me tested because my grades didn’t support the idea, frustrations with the whole concept of “official” education – still kinda fighting that one sometimes). I love how real “Rapunzel” feels. Maybe it’s just that Holmes has managed to really create a character who speaks to me and my experiences, but this book is already really hitting home for me. I can’t wait to read more!
