Staff Picks: A Kiss In Time

 From a very young age, Princess Talia was gifted beauty, grace, musical talent, intelligence… and a destiny to prick her finger on a spindle and send the Kingdom into a deep sleep before her sixteenth birthday.

When she is awakened three hundred years later by the kiss of a commoner—a commoner!—she must deal with her father’s ire, with such strange contraptions as phones and airplanes and with the ongoing vengeance of the evil witch Malvolia.

Discover a new take on the old Sleeping Beauty story in A Kiss in Time by Alex Flinn.
