Rosalinda Fitzroy has been asleep for sixty-two years when she is woken by a kiss.Locked away in the chemically induced slumber of a stasis tube in a forgotten sub-basement, sixteen-year-old Rose slept straight through the Dark Times that killed millions and utterly changed the world she knew. Now her parents and her first love are long dead, and Rose -- hailed upon her awakening as the long-lost heir to an interplanetary empire -- is thrust alone into a future in which she is viewed as either a freak or a threat.Desperate to put the past behind her and adapt to her new world, Rose finds herself drawn to the boy who kissed her awake, hoping that he can help her to start fresh. But when a deadly danger jeopardizes her fragile new existance, Rose must face the ghosts of her past with open eyes -- or be left without any future at all.

3.5 Book Review: A Long, Long Sleep by Anna Sheehan
A Long, Long Sleep, I don't know how to feel about you. I feel like we maybe got off on the wrong foot, because I was expecting to be blown away by your awesomeness. With the promise of a sci-fi fairytale retelling, my mind screamed, "CINDER! MORE OF THAT OMG YES PLEASE!" But you're not like that at...

A Long, Long Sleep is, as the title suggests, a fairytale re-imagining of the Sleeping Beauty story.
