Waterstones Says

Combining poetry and prose to startling effect, McLeod's powerful debut revolves around a girl imprisoned in a forest made from her own Afro as she comes of age amidst the temptations and opportunities of the inner-city.

A genre-bending YA that weaves together inner-city life and a wildly dangerous fairytale universe.

Rapunzella is imprisoned in an enchanted forest made of her own Afro and the might of the evil King Charming seems unstoppable. But is it? Can Rapunzella use her power to change the future?

You're fifteen, you spend your time at school and at Val's hair salon with Baker, Val's son, who has eyes that are like falling off a cliff into space. The salon is a space of safety, but also of possibility and dreams... Dreams of hair so rich and alive that it grow upwards and outwards into a wild landscape, becomes trees and leaves, and houses birds and butterflies and all the secret creatures that belong in such a forest. Is there a future where such possibility and power is more than just a dream?

Ella McLeod's debut merges poetry and prose in a stunningly lyrical, heart-piercingly honest exploration of a teenager coming into her power as a young woman.

“For Every Woman x”

This book was so beautiful and splendid. I enjoyed the lyrical language and the purposeful prose. Ella picked every work with caution to do an extraordinary retelling of a starchy, old fairy tale. More than impressed... More
