A Kiss in Time

Title: A Kiss in Time

Author: Alex Flinn

Publisher: HarperTeen


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?(summary from HarperTeen)


I really liked this book because it had both sides of the story and the characters made me want to see where they would end up and all of the travels they would have. This story was not just a retelling of the story of Sleeping Beauty it had a more interesting level of conflict and relationship, and it was fun to see how Talia saw our world from her 18th century eyes and thoughts! I also liked that there were unexpected twists and turns through out the book!

Rating: 5.5/10
