If you've ever been frustrated at any fairy tale heroine for sitting around waiting to be rescued, this is the story for you.

In this retelling, the fairy tale turns into a western, with Rapunzel running around on horseback, using her long hair as escape ladders, lassos, whips, or ropes that she uses to defeat her opponents and get revenge on the evil witch who stole her from her family and oppresses the countryside. (And they use the word "shindig." Who can resist shindigs?)

Quite a cute, unique retelling of Rapunzel's fairy tale story. Not particularly young adult - a slightly younger audience than that, but hilarious nonetheless.
