A LONG LONG SLEEP by ANNA SHEEHAN
I got a this book on my recent trip to Birmingham with my friends. It keeps on looking at me from the bookcase. I really want to read it soon, but I seem to be taking ages getting through my current book - Out by Natsuo Kirino. Initinally it was the cover that drew me to the book, but after reading the blurb on the back it seemed just my kind of book.
It should have been a short suspended-animation sleep. But this time Rose wakes up to find her past is long gone— and her future full of peril.
Rosalinda Fitzroy has been asleep for sixty-two years when she is woken by a kiss. Locked away in the chemically induced slumber of a stasis tube in a forgotten subbasement, 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 gone, 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.
