Reading progress update: I've read 24%.

The Golden Braid - Melanie Dickerson

I love retelling, especially when they tend to be more realistic and adult. This is not the disney Rapunzel who is shy and helpless. This character knows how to weld a sword and has a need to learn to read. So pretty much a girl i can relate to ha ha ha. Well the wanting to read part... not so much the sword.
