Product Description

Product Description

This is a novelette length modern fairy tale.

Paige should have never agreed to do her best friend’s semester English project. Community service sucks. Especially when you have a major social life. But it’s that or possible expulsion from school. Reading to a boy in a coma is just plain creepy, but her English teacher somehow thinks her acting skills make it the perfect community service match.

But when she finds the boy’s journal hidden among his books, things turn from creepy to interesting. Very interesting. The boy who looked like death slowly comes alive as she reads his own words to him. And each day Paige is wishing more and more he would wake up.

*And a warning for those sensitive to profanity, this story contains some.

4.0 out of 5 stars a charming tale 25 Mar 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A charming book that kept me reading til the small hours. Very likable characters and a lovely twist on the fairy tale. The writer has a deft touch overall but was a little clumsy in places. This was a free little gem and I will be trying her other titles.

4.0 out of 5 stars The perfect YA bedtime story 9 May 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Caroline for[...]
This mini review is part of a larger post about romance novellas which can be found here:
[...]

This predictably sweet, but satisfying novella was the perfect between novels palate cleanser.
Though Zach's painfully candid diary entries, Paige comes to learn as much about her own self-absorbed and shallow nature, as she does the silent young man lying supine beside her.

Verdict: A feel good, hug of a novella, with a surprising amount of character development. The perfect bedtime story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing 29 Jan 2013
By Simone

The book is short but so good. I read the whole book in one night. I got so indulged into the book, couldn't stop reading. The story line is so cute and clever. I would read this book over and over again! I can't believe it was free.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great read 5 Aug 2012
By lasygnt
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved this revision of sleeping beauty because while Disney is great it doesn't have that touch of realism that lets you connect with the characters like 'sleeping handsome'. I loved the human reaction Paige had forwards the situation she found herself in and how her character developed. The family dynamics for Zach were awesome they made this story really real I hoped we could have heard more about the mothers feelings as well. I know I keep banging on about reality. But Sometimes when you read fairy tale type books you never really get the feeling that this could Happen to me, but this book really made me feel that this could be happening as I write this review somewhere across the world. It's a great free flick and I would recommend it to anyone.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good idea 18 Jun 2012
By Kenny
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Short and sort of sweet. I liked the idea of this book but the lead character was pretty shallow (even when she was supposed to have changed) and this took away a little from the story. Good idea overall though.
