Golden by Cameron Dokey (Review)

Before Rapunzel's birth, her mother made a dangerous deal with the sorceress Melisande: If she could not love newborn Rapunzel just as she appeared, she would surrender the child to Melisande. When Rapunzel was born completely bald and without hope of ever growing hair, her horrified mother sent her away with the sorceress to an uncertain future.

After sixteen years of raising Rapunzel as her own child, Melisande reveals that she has another daughter, Rue, who was cursed by a wizard years ago and needs Rapunzel's help. Rue and Rapunzel have precisely "two nights and the day that falls between" to break the enchantment. But bitterness and envy come between the girls, and if they fail to work together, Rue will remain cursed...forever.


This was a fantastic fairy tale retelling! This is the fifth book I read in the Once Upon A Time series and it is by far the best one...so far :)

When I started the story and found out Rapunzel is bald I was flabbergasted. I just couldn't figure out how this was going to work, but it did in a great way!

I loved the way love-at-first-sight was explained, it was both sweet and made so much sense.

The twist at the end was fabulous and I loved it! I'm not going to say any more about it, as I don't want to spoil it, but just know that's it's great!

If you love fairy tales or fairy tale retellings, you should love this book.
