After a hundred years, Sleeping Beauty is waking up.
At Effie’s junior Prom, everyone is gossiping about a new boy who looks like he stepped out of a Grimm’s fairy tale. Unlike her classmates, Effie can overlook the boy’s old-fashioned formality and even his shockingly white hair, but she cannot ignore his familiarity. Because she has seen him many times before—once upon a dream. In the middle of a dance, Effie faints, only to be awakened in a haunted forest by the boy from her dreams. But her happy ending is only the beginning of a nightmare.
The further she’s dragged into the mysterious world of storybook castles and breathtaking magic, Effie finds herself at the root of an ancient feud and a cursed fate. And if she cannot break the spell before her eighteenth birthday, she’s doomed to prick her finger on a spindle and fall into an enchanted sleep forever.
