Rapunzella, Or, Don't Touch My Hair (Paperback)

UK delivery within 5 days


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


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.

A bold new voice in YA fiction, Ella McLeod is a spoken word

poet and actor.

Perfect for fans of Elizabeth Acevedo, Dean Atta and

Kalynn Bayron.

A celebration of Black hair and the power of coming into

your identity.
