Just letting you all know that my first summer reading book is A Kiss In Time by Alex Flinn. It is one of next year's Black-eyed Susan Nominees. It is a re-write of Sleeping Beauty, but the main character, Talia has slept for 300 years is kissed by Jack in our modern time. Can't wait to start reading it!!
