A Kiss In Time by Alex Flinn
Such a fun book! I really enjoy Alex Flinn's re-told fairy tales.
This is the story of sleeping beauty, a princess named Talia, who is cursed to prick her finger on a spindle and fall asleep along with her entire kingdom before her sixteenth birthday. Her parents spend her whole life trying to shield her from spindles to no avail. The deed is done, a forest grows around the kingdom and it is not until 300 years later when Jack, a teenager from the USA on tour in Europe decides to skip the tour of yet another museum and while looking for the beach, stumbles through the forest to the sleeping kingdom of Euphrasia, sees the beautiful sleeping princess, kisses and wakes her and the adventure begins.
Fantastic book, humor and adventure - really loved it!
