In which a teenage girl endures the over-protective love of her adoptive mother until she falls for a boy who has her wanting to spread her wings, pitched as a contemporary retelling of RAPUNZEL
Seventeen-year-old Anya leads a very secluded life in a house on the edge of town with her adopted mother. She doesn't go to school, but instead has a private tutor. Her over-protective mom keeps her so sheltered that she doesn't even have a best friend.
But Anya doesn't seem to mind. She has her books, her photography, and her daydreams, and would do anything to please her mom. Until one day at the library, the only place she's allowed to go, she takes a picture of a beautiful boy.
Before long she's lying to her mom, and sneaking out late at night to meet Zander. But Zander wants more than a secret romance. If Anya wants to be with the boy of her dreams, she will have to risk her relationship with the only other person she's ever cared about.
Rachel grew up in a tiny town in Minnesota. She still lives there, with her husband and their four kids. She coaches high school speech and theater, rides Arabian horses, reads as much as she can, and writes stories.
Young, innocent love at its best...I mean they meet at the library...how cute is that:)! I am a sucker for some high school love and drama and this book definitely delivered! Anya was adopted as a toddler and thinks that she is suppose to be a replacement for a daughter that was lost. Anya's mother is VERY strict on her and rarely lets her leave the house. The one place she is allowed to go is the library. Well guess who she meets?! A BOY!!!
Zander is so cute and precious! Even when he is accused of having a make believe girlfriend he still does not get upset with Anya. I loved the way Zander was able to help Anya realize that she needed to open up to her adoptive mother and find out what the problem really was. I really enjoyed this book!! Left me smiling and feeling warn inside!
BTW...I had to go eat a cupcake after their little dates away from the library! I give this one 4 stars!
