The novel began by introducing the protagonist, an intelligent but shy girl who has trouble fitting in at her high school, Hawthorne High. Charlotte is desperate to fit in, and spends her summer planning what outfits she will wear, the people she’ll talk to, and most of all, how she will get her crush Damian to fall in love with her and forget about the mean, gossiping Petula. Odly enough, unlike most teen books, her plans start to work, and by a stroke of unbelievable luck she is assigned to be Damian’s science partner. I had almost decided not to continue reading this novel, thinking that it would follow the usual pattern of trying to be popular, succeding, having something go terribly wrong, and then learning that popularity is not important, but the novel sud... ... middle of paper ... ...epiest part of the book, but it was also the first time that the ghosts show what they’re truly capable of.

Tangled In many fairy tales, there is always a damsel in distress that is beautiful and the male character always falls in love with her. In Rapunzel the short story, Rapunzel is put into a tower and lives there most of her young life by her ‘mother’ before her prince comes to recuse her. The difference between Tangled and Rapunzel the short story is that, Rapunzel is the princess and her prince is actually a thief, which ends up falling in love with her. Tangled illustrates how a naïve and beautiful heroine, evil mother figure, and a shallow egotistical hero can make a fairy tale story end with love and marriage. As in many fairy tales we have grown up with, the characters are always beautiful or handsome, with an evil mother that wants to destroy that.
