Alright, so this is a fantasy book (I am eighty-five percent positive). Honestly I wish I remember something from the book, but all I remember is the cover. I read it in 2007. The cover has a young girl on the cover who is surrounded by green. She has fair skin and brown hair that is in a ridiculously long braid. there may all be a small animal on the cover with her, I'm not entirely sure. She's smiling, but it's a soft smile.
The series is meant for young adults and is part of a series. If anyone at all could help that would be super! Thanks again!
Incorporating comments from OP:
It was a drawn cover, natural book. She was wearing a green top. She was only visible from just below her shoulders and up. There were green vines surrounding her, but all I remember of the background is green. I got it from my Aunt and I have no clue when it was written, but it seemed fairly new. Fantasy. I couldn't see how long the braid was, but I remember that it was described as longer than usual. No, it is not Rapunzel, I am 100% positive I would remember Rapunzel. It's not anything like Rapunzel.
After searching for a while longer, I remember that it is centered around the girl and she had a small animal with her, along with a bird. That's really all I remember. I contacted my Aunt about it, but I'm not sure she'll remember. It was part of a trilogy! The first book is as described and the second all I remember is that she was somewhere near the sea.
