In all of Tyme, from the Redlands to the Grey, no one is as lucky as Rapunzel. She lives in a magic tower that obeys her every wish; she reads wonderful books starring herself as the heroine; her hair is the longest, most glorious thing in the world. And she knows this because Witch tells her so— her beloved Witch, who protects her from evil princes, the dangerous ground under the tower, even unhappy thoughts. Rapunzel can’t imagine any other life.

Then a thief named Jack climbs into her room to steal one of her enchanted roses. He’s the first person Rapunzel’s ever met who isn’t completely charmed by her (well, the first person she’s met at all, really), and he is infuriating— especially when he hints that Witch isn’t telling her the whole truth. Driven by anger at Jack and her own nameless fears, Rapunzel descends to the ground for the first time, and finds a world filled with more peril than Witch promised…and more beauty, wonder, and adventure than she could have dreamed.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Morrison has a deft hand with both world-building and pacing…Rapunzel and Jack have an easy, witty banter going…adding a much appreciated dollop of humor to their tale.”

    Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books (starred review)

  • “The novel does not miss a beat in creating Tyme, a beautifully described world with a seamless fusion of magical and nonmagical beings, scenery, and objects…The characters are refreshingly three-dimensional, helping readers empathize with Rapunzel as she wrestles with universal feelings of love and betrayal.”

    Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

  • “The novel [has] emotional depth and inventiveness…A full-bodied world worth revisiting.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “The story line moves swiftly as Jack and Rapunzel face evil Stalkers, thieving bandits, biting cold, and an uncertain food supply..[in] a story that has plenty of suspense and intrigue…Fans of traditional and fractured fairy tales will thoroughly enjoy this new twist on an old story.”

    School Library Journal

  • “Narrator Susan Hanfield adds vocal perfection to Morrison’s rich characters…Hanfield handles Rapunzel’s emotional transitions from incredulous disbelief to all-consuming love for Witch and to her ultimate transformation from a spoiled and sheltered girl into a confident and trustworthy companion. Hanfield’s portrayal of Witch switches effortlessly between sweet and motherly and cold and raspy. Hanfield nails each character no matter the role, creating a magnificent performance.”
