A dystopian Sleeping Beauty

 

 

 

    Just finished the debut YA novel by Anna Sheehan, A Long LonSleep, a story loosely based on the fairy tale Sleeping Beauty. It has all the requirements for YA fiction; unrequited  love, evil adults, strong male lead character, high school cliches. The twist in this retelling is in the setting and the characters Sheehan creates. I like that  Sheehan keeps the dystopian future believable and more importantly,  relatable to her young readers.

         I look forward to her next novel. I’m giving this one 8 out of 10.
