A Long, Long Sleep - Anna Sheehan Loved it!It surprised the heck outta me. The first 50 or so pages seemed just entertaining, but not necessarily anything special. And then suddenly there was sympathy and depth and layers and I accidentally-on-purpose took an extra long lunch, because I couldn't stand to NOT finish it.I am so eager to see what happens next. Not only the further development of Rose, but of the other characters. (I so want to be friends with Otto, he would so get me.) There is no sign of a sequel listed on Goodreads, but due diligence netted me an author comment saying that the sequel was already written. But due to issues won't be out for at least a year. Say it isn't so!From the Book Description: "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 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."Re-read #1: 3/17/13Original Read: 2/28/12
