Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for providing this book in exchange for an honest review This did not influence my review in any waySo me and this book had a few troubles After being approved n Netgalley which took so long it was already The Moon and the Thorn out by the time I was I realised from readingther reviews that though it is a companion novel The Cinderella Moment should be read before The Rapunzel Dilemma Considering I d been planning n reading it anyway I thought I would track it down shouldn t be too hard right Except Dymocks didn t have it in so I had to wait a week for it to come in So then I got it finally read it in a day All good I start The Rapunzel Dilemma that night nly to get thirty pages in to my galley and encounter a blank page in the middle The Schooled

outf Whooo-Ku order Close Adobe Editionspen it again restart laptop nothing worked And I couldn t re download it from Netgalley because I d taken so long to get around to it that it had been archived Great However I refused to be beaten and the next time I was in the city Thursday I bought myself a paperback copy as well as some Kayla Eli Discover Jazz other goodies because I can I finished the book I d movedn to and FINALLY I was Oxford Examined on my way The Rapunzel Dilemma picks up a few weeks after the happy endingf The Cinderella Moment Lily has convinced her father that he should let her attend the London Drama Academy an idea he was not too keen n to begin with But he has made her a deal he will allow her three years at the Academy and then she will have to step into her role in the family business She begrudgingly agrees for now and receives a rare audition for the Academy Instantly her new classmates believe that it is Lily s money and connections that have got her there and as you can imagine they are livid I would be too and I don t blame them at all So for the first time ever life is not easy for Lily de Tourney and she finds that at the Academy her status and privilege mean nothing ther than being able to purchase an expensive bedspread to rub her roommates noses in not literally which really is not going to make them like you any than before The classes are difficult too and Lily is also learning that even though she loves acting she might not actually be as good as she thinks she isAs well as handling all the drama Engendering Song of being the rich kid nobody likes someone is also trying to sabotage Lily s new friendships and things start to go missing get ruined and trashed and all fingers point to Lily even though she s getting menacing letters in her locker Oh wait don t forget the love interest Cue entryf mysterious angsty good looking boy from the Come Hell or High Water other sidef the tracks The Rapunzel parallels are in Lily s long blonde locks and the Tower in which she seeks refuge from the students who dislike her the sabotage and from her teachers harsh but in my The Great Railway Bazaar opinion deserved criticism Basically there s a reason none likes Lily She is spoiled and privileged and has no idea about the real world and what goes Rue Marquis De Sade on in it Even when she recognises this she doesn t change her attitude so it is hard to like her She is incredibly na ve and I couldn t believe that she didn t realise thatbviously she had help getting her audition at the Academy I could still feel the fairytale element in this story but not uite as well although Five Farthings overall I enjoyed it than I did The Cinderella Moment There were few parallels in the flowf the two stories particularly in misunderstandings with the respective love interests and another rushed conclusion where everything is tied up with a neat bow in the last thirty pages My Rocky Romance Diary (Diaries of Kelly Ann, or so So what did I like Because I did like it even though I didn t like Lily didn t really like the romance and didn t like how rushed the conclusion was Waitdid I like this Well I did I liked the boarding school setting and I liked the friendships especially Angel and Lily s friendship and how Lily had tor less learn how to make friends with people who didn t like her I thought the blossoming friendships with her roommates were sweet but I didn t particularly care for Max much at all despite the fact that he was the first Historias de cronopios y de famas one to befriend her Hands down my favourite character is still Grandmama who has a subtle role in this story but makes an appearance nonetheless I completely understand Grandmama even when Lily doesn t imagine finding your 16 yearld granddaughter at a hotel in the English countryside and meet her male companion wearing a hotel in the English countryside and meet her male companion wearing but a towel Even if he had been the most upperclass young man ever she still would have thrown a fit you would hope in the name Pope Francis of good grandparenting despite it all being a casef misunderstanding Surely Lily and Ronan would realise that But it s a fairytale There needs to be conflict for a nice resolutionAnd look it was a nice if somewhat unrealistic resolution It was a fairly enjoyable read and the ending was nice but Redemption (Amos Decker, on further thought I have dropped my rating from 4 stars to 35 It wasn t spectacular but it was a nice and light fluffy read A kindf seuel to this author s ther YA book The Cinderella moment As with that book I greatly enjoyed this ne however having Lily as the main character was a little tiresome Yes she grew Harry Potter Series Box Set (Harry Potter, on me

Heart/To Kiss A Count/The Runaway Countess of desire because he s like so totally deep and mysteriousI ve always liked boarding school stories but The Rapunzel Dilemma made me realise how much I love performing school stories as well In Adi Rule s Strange Sweet Song Rule made up an entirepera for the school to perform In The Rapunzel Dilemma Jennifer Kloester falls back n something that reuires much less work and picks a play in the public domain A Midsummer Night s Dream by William Shakespeare I did however love the references to classic school plays like The Crucible However I actually did attend a performing arts school and I actually was in A Midsummer Night s Dream and almost nothing the teachers taught the students resembled anything at all I might recognise from my days learning the craft The teachers kept banging n about the students having to appear Prima Donna otherworldly and wise and a whole bunchf concepts that they kept yelling to their students about but not actually teaching them how to represent said concepts physically emotionally At شرح التعرف لمذهب التصوف -پنج مجلد one point Lily is accusedf appearing shallow and na ve whilst reciting lines but there was absolutely no improvements fferedI sure felt sorry for those kids because they didn t have much guidance at all and coupled with this weird need to workshop and rehearse the play as different characters before they are even cast I didn t find much in common with the performance aspect In that respect Adi s Strange Sweet Song really utshined The Rapunzel Dilemma because Rule really got into the head Words of Life of the performing student in a way Kloester didn t I will however say that I was glad that the role Lily was eventuallyffered was not Ten Orange Pumpkins onef the traditional roles even if it appeared a little Mary Sue ish It would have suited me just fine if she d been cast in the most difficult part and I think it would have added extra conflict as wellI didn t particularly like Lily as a character because she was a whiny self indulgent privileged brat who utright refused to accept that her wealth and privilege had given her a shot at the school that ther students didn t have I certainly don t think she deserved the horrible things that happened to her and I was The Lady Elizabeth on the edgef my seat for most American General of the book hoping she d getut unscathed and figure Wishes and Worries out who was behind the horrible pranks But Lily never uite warmed up to me and neither did the love interest which was easily spotted from a mileff They simply had no spark together no chemistry It was practically a paint by numbers romance and I was much interested in the The Downs Syndrome Handbook other aspectsf the bookHowever Lily s friendship with Angel was darling to watch even if they weren t Club Dead (Sookie Stackhouse, on page together and Lily s tentative friendship with severalf the When All Hell Breaks Loose other characters was also nice to watch develop especially because someone was sabotaging her and making her life hell I liked watching the dynamics between Lily s three room mates and every single character in the novel had theirwn personality and motivation which was brilliant to seeI wouldn t necessarily say that The Rapunzel Dilemma is a modern retelling Hell Fire (Corine Solomon, of Rapunzel but takes inspiration from certain aspects Lily has long hair and she shuts herself in a tower to hide away from thether students I did like seeing the classic Rapunzel elements brought the life in this way especially at the climax where I was practically hyperventilating with anxiety Friscos Kid (Tall, Dark Dangerous, only to see the most perfect usef the fairy tale trope found in the SOG original taleI also need to add that The Rapunzel Dilemma is being promoted as a companion novel to The Cinderella Moment but I wasften lost and confused about all Seven Bad Ideas of the events and charactersbviously explored in the first novel I d recommend reading The Cinderella Moment first and I think I *ll track it down so I can make sense f The Rapunzel Dilemma They should be first and second *track it down so I can make sense f The Rapunzel Dilemma They should be first and second a series not companion novelsHowever all Togo of that being said the book was brilliantly written and it certainly didn t stop me from really enjoying it and every aspect even if I found the performing stuff weird Lily unlikeable and the romance lukewarm If you re interested in performance school storiesr uirky interpretations Bikini of fairy tales then I d really recommend The Rapunzel Dilemma because I just wanted to keep reading it despite itsbvious flaws Thanks to Penguin Australia and Netgalley for providing a free review

all Instead f putting her foot down she just goes along with it and doesn t tell Angel anything at all even after "SHE ENCOUNTERS MANY PROBLEMS AT THE "encounters many problems at the I just didn t agree with the decisions she made throughout the bookThe romance with Ronan was sweet enough although I didn t see what he saw in Lily especially since she was so different to him Her serves as her support but we are barely given anything about Ronan until later in the bookI didn t realise this was the companion novel to the Cinderella Moment until afterwards but I don t think I missed a lot as I believe Lily I don t think I missed a lot as I believe Lily story is standaloneWhile written well The Rapunzel Dilemma featured a character who I failed to connect with due to her sheltered

great for Lily s story but rather two dimensional The Real Deal on theirwn I would have liked to have seen about them and their Nursing Care Plans own problems rather than just how they added to Lily
