This is a comparison I made between Marrissa Meyer's Book Cress, which is part of a series called the lunar chronicles and is based of Rapunzel, and the original Grimm Fairytale it was based off of. I thought that I caught all the parallels when I first read it but there were so many I didn't realize till I read the original and seeing as Rapumzel is my favorite princess I thought this was pretty epic. So I hope this helps you have an even better viewpoint of Cress.
I love this a lot. People have been saying Rapunzel can't be Annabeth because she isn't smart enough. This is just an edit. And Rapunzel is extremely smart for her time like how she charted the stars and painted them on her celing and she also had limited resources ,like having only 3-4 books
