I have mixed feelings about this, I loved the first half, one of the most realistic and detailed descriptions of boarding school life I've read, and the characters were appealing, but the second half was a bit of a mess... rushed, forced and without any clear theme or message where there needed to be one. I know it is supposed to be a retelling of Rapunzel, and it stuck pretty close to that in all its rawness, but it would have been a better book if it hadn't bothered with that, and perhaps if it had have been long enough to explore the plot fully and the consequences of Megan's actions. I couldn't help feeling a lovely setting and narrator were wasted on this little paperback.
