Two princess cousins, Rapunzel and Snow White, are raised as best friends in the magical kingdom of Fenmore Falls—until Rapunzel is kidnapped at the age of six. Ten years later, Snow is forced to flee the castle when her own safety is threatened. Meanwhile, Rapunzel, who has been secretly locked in a tower all this time, escapes with the help of two unlikely friends.
Both princesses find themselves in a mysterious place called Idaho, where they happily reunite. A woman called Aunt Em takes the two girls into her house, which is already filled to the brim with seven teenage brothers and their little sister Dorothy. Some of the brothers aren’t so sure about Rapunzel and Snow White, and the feeling is definitely mutual. But when villains—including a ship full of pirates—threaten the princesses’ lives, the seven brothers come to the rescue.
Sometimes, friendship—or even love—comes where you least expect it.

I know they say to not judge a book by the cover, but I was drawn to the beautiful cover...and I'm so glad I was. I loved this story, and the twist between two beloved princesses - Rapunzel and Snow White. The retelling was clever and very unique.
This is another great retelling of a fairy tale story by Tarrah Montgomery. As with the first two books in this series, Rescuing Rapunzel is both a familiar story and a brand new story. The familiar plot of the fairy tale is there, but the reader wonders how everything will all fit together right up until the very end. In this book, two princess stories (as well as a few elements and characters from other stories) are woven together seamlessly. It was a fun, entertaining read. But even more importantly, I felt that the theme of this book was an important one about finding joy even in difficult circumstances. Both Rapunzel and Snow White are good, admirable characters while being believable as regular teenage girls. I enjoyed this book immensely and would highly recommend it.
