  1.      This is a children’s novel that I read when I was enrolled in my Master’s program and this review will share what it can teach us about each other.  Zel is actually a ‘Rapunzel’ story. ‘Zel’ written by Donna Jo Napoli.  There are many scenes that are like those of the the original fairy tale, but the relationships are more on the adolescent/teenage ideas.

          Teachers in a Reading or English class could have their students read this book and have a discussion on how this book is related to the current generation.  The teacher could ask them if any of the students have felt like any of the characters.  The teacher could also ask how did this book make you feel and what character or characters did you relate to or is more like you.  This is a coming of age novel in my opinion.
