A Kiss in Time
by Alex Flinn
Talia fell under a spell...Jack broke the curse.
I was told to beware the accursed spindle, but it was so enchanting, so hypnotic...
I was looking for a little adventure the day I ditched my tour group. But finding a comatose town, with a hot-looking chick asleep in it, was so not what I had in mind.
I awakened in the same place but in another time—to a stranger's soft kiss.
I couldn't help kissing her. Sometimes you just have to kiss someone. I didn't know this would happen.
Now I am in dire trouble because my father, the king, says I have brought ruin upon our country. I have no choice but to run away with this commoner!
Now I'm stuck with a bratty princess and a trunk full of her jewels...The good news: My parents will freak!
Think you have dating issues? Try locking lips with a snoozing stunner who turns out to be 316 years old. Can a kiss transcend all—even time?
A Kiss in Time… It was an incredible retelling of sleeping beauty played by Jack and Talia. It was quite intriguing to me even though we all know how the original tale goes. Flinn just couldn’t be content with the ‘girl-has-been-cursed, needs-a-kiss, happy-ending’, concept, and I’m glad she’s like that. It was really great to discover that Flinn found a way to make it surprising (again:D).
The twist and turn on the plot was really amazing and entertaining, as well as the characters. Talia and Jack: they were just so sweet and cute. And believe it of not, I love the witch!
20th century could really be challenging for girls born on the 17th century. I’d looked forward on how she would react and adjust with everything especially when she only had one hostile help. In the end I found that I really like this book!
