Waiting on Wednesday

A Kiss In Time by Alex Flinn

Talia fell under a spell . . . . Jack broke the curse.
-I was told to beware the accursed spindle, but it was so enchanting, so hypnotic. . . .
-I was looking for a little adventure the day I ditched my tour group. But finding a comatose town, with a hot-looking chick asleep in it, was so not what I had in mind.
-I awakened in the same place but in another time—to a stranger's soft kiss.
-I couldn't help kissing her. Sometimes you just have to kiss someone. I didn't know this would happen.
-Now I am in dire trouble because my father, the king, says I have brought ruin upon our country. I have no choice but to run away with this commoner!
-Now I'm stuck with a bratty princess and a trunk full of her jewels. . . . The good news: My parents will freak!
-Think you have dating issues? Try locking lips with a snoozing stunner who turns out to be 316 years old. Can a kiss transcend all—even time?

This book looks like a humorous and original modernization of the fairytale Sleeping Beauty. It's nice to see a book characterize the princess as a snob, instead of a "princess". And Jack doesn't seem like your ordinary prince either. A Kiss In Time will be released on April 28th.
