Product Details


★ ”The heart of the story lies in the utterly authentic relationship between the sisters, who squabble, tease, and hurt each other—and love one another with a fierceness that absolutely demands a happily-ever-after. Effervescent, thrilling, and practically perfect in every way.” —Kirkus, starred review

★ “This retelling adds an original twist to a beloved classic and gives a younger sister a chance to earn a little of the spotlight. A fun, compelling story…recommended for younger siblings, fans of princess stories, and fantasy lovers.” —SLJ, starred review

“A fantastically dark and twisty Sleeping Beauty retelling, full of secrets, danger, fairies who are truly scary, and a complicated sisterly relationship that I adored.” —Stephanie Burgis, author of Kat, Incorrigible

“A compelling, delightful, topsy-turvy Sleeping Beauty retelling. Princess Briony is not one to wait for wake-up kisses, she’d rather head straight out into an adventure. Such a fun read!” —Sarah Prineas, author of The Magic Thief and Winterling

“Incorporating surprising twists and subverting tropes to emphasize sibling bonds over romance, Cypess creates a fun tale with a strong heroine…” —Publishers Weekly

“In this funny, compelling retelling of the classic fairytale, readers will enjoy untangling the mystery even while they explore ideas about how complicated sister relationships can be.” —The Children’s Book Review
