Waiting on Wednesday - A Long Long Sleep by Anna Sheehan

A Long Long Sleep by Anna Sheehan
August 9th, 2011 by Candlewick

Rosalinda Fitzroy has been asleep for 62 years when she is woken by a kiss. Locked away in the chemically-induced slumber of a stasis tube in a forgotten sub-basement, sixteen-year-old Rose slept straight through the Dark Times that killed millions and utterly changed the world she knew. Now, her parents and her first love are long dead, and Rose - hailed upon her awakening as the long-lost heir to an interplanetary empire - is thrust alone into a future in which she is viewed as either a freak or a threat. Desperate to put the past behind her and adapt to her new world, Rose finds herself drawn to the boy who kissed her awake, hoping that he can help her to start fresh. But when a deadly danger jeopardizes her fragile new existence, Rose must face the ghosts of her past with open eyes - or be left without any future at all.

I browsed through the Candlewick catalog last week and found this. I didn't see an ARC of it at TLA so it was new to me. I think this book will appeal to those that love fair tales. I read on her literary agents site that they are dubbing this, "a young adult Time Traveler's Wife." Hmmm, interesting! Anyone ever hear of this one?
