Waiting on Wednesday

When Rose Wakes by Christopher Golden
Release Date: September 28, 2010
Publisher: MTV Books

An enchanting tale by Christoper Golden about a teenager who wakes from a coma and slowly comes to realize that she is Sleeping Beauty of fairy tales.

A bit more from the author's blog:

Present day New York, Rose wakes from a coma with no memory, and only her two aunts to care for her. But how long has she REALLY been asleep, and what secret past are her aunts hiding from her?

Between the two synopsis I found, it sounds like something I'd like. I always love a new spin on classic fairy tales. And I'm such a cover whore and this one is gorgeous!

Sounds like a very interesting idea to write about... I wonder though if its reminiscent of Snow White almost.
