Letters from Rapunzel: Second Post (Gifted Kid)

Letters from RapunzelI’m loving this book. “Rapunzel” has already figured out that being smart doesn’t make you happy. In fact, as she points out, it often does quite the opposite! I really like how Holmes shows “Rapunzel’s” intelligence and creativity through her writing and ideas and reactions. Simply the way she responds to assignments tells a lot about her. She’s beautifully drawn. Holmes has managed to write a character who is clearly very gifted, but also clearly a kid. It’s obvious Holmes actually knows some gifted kids, the difference in she writes one from how they usually appear in literature is enormous. This is so interesting to read! I almost can’t put it down!
