Not all princesses get their happily ever after... The highly anticipated new YA Fantasy from Christy Sloat is hitting virtual bookshelves March 16th. Today is the reveal of the beautiful cover.If you love fairy-tales then you'll want to get this re-telling of Sleeping Beauty. It's unlike anything you've ever read before!
They tell me I killed my boyfriend Phillip in cold blood. I stabbed him twenty one times. Iâm only seventeen years old, and I am serving life in Spindle Ridge Asylum for the Criminally Insane.
I donât remember killing him, so itâs really hard to believe Iâm capable of murder. In fact I donât remember anything before I came to Spindle Ridge, not even my boyfriend.
I can only grasp onto my realistic dreams while the madness of the asylum threatens to pull me under. I dream Iâm a beautiful princess and there is an evil faerie named Maleficent who is bent on my destruction. The dreams are the closest thing I have to memories of my life, except they arenât real.
Iâm crazy. Iâm not a princess.
Theyâre the mad illusions of an irrational teenage girl, right?
Theyâve assigned me a new doctor, and she says I can trust her, and that sheâll help me see the truth of who I really am.
When she arrived she brought a new patient, Sawyer, who is everything Spindle Ridge isnât: exciting, mysterious and beautiful. He promises heâs here to rescue me. Trusting either of them frightens me.
Could it be possible that my dreams are more than just the imaginings of a delusional girl? Could they be truth?
