Review: Towering By: Alex Flinn

ToweringTowering by Alex Flinn
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I don't understand what inside that makes me reach for Alex Flinn's books- is it the modern fairy tale, the quick read - yes to those, but for some reason I was very disappointed in this modern take on Rapunzel.
Somewhere in the story set in a small New York State town, where drugs have taken over, there is a prophesy of a girl that would bring it down. - Yeah, exactly - oh, she was put away in a tower hidden in the woods only to be found by the one that could release her. Let's not forget the abundance of missing people that the cops don't search for.
How I really wanted to like this - but I can't say that without rolling my eyes. It felt like it was dialed in, not invested - which left me not invested in the characters or the story.
If you are an Alex Flinn fan, check the book out at the library - otherwise, skip it.
