‘Let Down Your Hair’ By Morgan Kail-Ackerman

In a modern twist of the classic fairytale Rapunzel, Zel finds herself alone and afraid in an apartment she cannot leave. With magical hair, she can change her natural black hair to blonde, but an ability to change her looks makes Zel question who she really is. With a controlling mother who believes beauty is long, blonde hair, Zel must find a way to stand up to her and figure out who she is.
