Hair-raising twist on a well-known tale

With Rapunzel's Revenge, Author Shannon Hale puts Wild West twist on this well-known fairy tale. After escaping from her enchanted tree prison, the self-sufficient, adventurous Rapunzel falls into alliance with Calamity Jack. Shortly afterward, they become two of the most wanted Outlaws in the Wild West. Only by defeating the evil witch who is responsible for the countryside's poverty does the duo clear their names. And maybe there's some romance too.

Although a fairy-tale, there's nothing Disney about this story's heroine. The Wild West spin is also fun. --AJL
