A Long Long Sleep by Anna Sheehan

A Long, Long Sleep


         Description from Goodreads.com http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/7766070
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 have to admit, going into this one brought back the same feelings and emotions as Across the Universe by Beth Revis contained. But this one takes a new turn that makes it stand out on it's own. I enjoyed this one just as much as I enjoyed ATU and recommend it for you as well. It has the same dark mystery going on in it that drives you crazy trying to figure out what's going on.

Rose is very likeable, her feelings very understandable and with technology today I could imagine her situation very clearly. How would that be to wake up 60 years later, not knowing who you are anymore, where you belong and how to function normally. What happened to your family? Then to find out your in danger, cannot figure out who or why and not knowing people well enough to know who to trust or where to go. I became almost addicted to this story once I got into it, stuck in my thoughts for a couple of weeks. Very entertaining, intriguing and contagious..I want more.

I loved the twists in this story, I did not see them coming, I really did not know what to expect and was very delighted with the turn of events.

Although the book does round out nicely in the end, it leaves only a few questions that could be taken into a series
