The Wide-Awake Princess by E.D. Baker

In this new stand-alone fairy tale, Princess Annie is the younger sister to Gwen, the princess destined to be Sleeping Beauty. When Gwennie pricks her finger and the whole castle falls asleep, only Annie is awake, and only Annie—blessed (or cursed?) with being impervious to magic—can venture out beyond the rose-covered hedge for help. She must find Gwen's true love to kiss her awake.
But who is her true love? The irritating Digby? The happy-go-lucky Prince Andreas, who is holding a contest to find his bride? The conniving Clarence, whose sinister motives couldn't possibly spell true love? Joined by one of her father's guards, Liam, who happened to be out of the castle when the sleeping spell struck, Annie travels through a fairy tale land populated with characters both familiar and new as she tries to fix her sister and her family . . . and perhaps even find a true love of her own.

Tifferz Take-
This is hands down one of my favorite fairy tales! E.D Baker has weaved a magical tale that kept me entralled from the first chapter. I loved the spin on many other fairy tales and neatly rolled into one and made it truely unique. My only complaint is that it ended a little too quickly.  I would have enjoyed a little more of that happy ending! I am hooked on E.D. Baker's writing and will be reading more from this author. This was my first read from the author and will not be my last. I will be reading this again and to my children as well! Simply delightful and recommend this adventurous romantic tale.
