The tale of Rose Red, or more commonly, Sleeping Beauty, is a favorite among our staff at JustJaredJr.com.
So it’s no wonder that our pick for August is “A Long, Long Sleep” by Anna Sheehan.
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 â€” hailed upon her awakening as the long-lost heir to an interplanetary empire â€” 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 existence, Rose must face the ghosts of her past with open eyes â€” or be left without any future at all.
