Waiting on Wednesday (56)

"Waiting on Wednesday" is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. Here's what I'm waiting on this week:

A Long Long Sleep
by Anna Sheehan
To be released: August 09, 2011

Summary from Baker and Taylor:
"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 subbasement, 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 gone, 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 existence, Rose must face the ghosts of her past with open eyes— or be left without any future at all."

This book sounds fantastic! I absolutely love the cover. It sounds a little like Sleeping Beauty, but has a huge twist if it's at all based on it. I'm pretty sure this is a debut author as well. Doesn't get any better! It seems like this book is a little sci fi, a little romance, and a retelling. Sounds like so much fun. I've seen a few reviews about this book being awesome... so I'm excited for when it comes out!
