A long long sleep

Anna Sheehan 

Imagine your whole world, everything you care about, love, the small things you take comfort in, gone, right before your eyes. You were put into stasis, by your parents, the head owners of one of the largest companies in the world. They were supposed to wake you up when they got back from their business trip, but instead you find out they died in a helicopter accident while you were asleep, leaving you all alone, no one to wake you up.  

You wake up 62 years later, to a boy standing over you, once he realizes who you are, your world changes even more. Now 'you' are the soon to be owner of your dead parents business, once you come of age of course. You just woke up, you're drained with stasis fatigue, your overwhelmed by loss, and you have all these responsibilities. You have to find your place in a world where everything has changed, technical wise, to the way people speak, to going to a new school and dealing with students who hate you for reasons you cant even understand... sounds pretty bad huh? Well that isn't even the worst part. 

Who's living this horrible life? Sixteen year old Rosalinda Fitzroy. Once you read this story you will be super thankful that, that isn't your name. Now I know what I was thinking while reading this book, 

"Seriously? How could her life get any worse?"

Although if you think about it, the story line is sad, and for those of you who don't like sad stories, you probably don't care to read this book, but ill tell you this book isn't a waste of time. There is always something about it that grabs you and intrigues you to turn the next page to see what happens. It is well written, and lets you be able to connect with the characters. Its full of surprises and unexpected turns, that at first lets you think you understand everything and you know whats going to happen, then it takes a sharp right and you're left in an intriguing shock. 

One thing I enjoyed from this book is how despite everything that happened, Rose would find something she still enjoyed doing, like painting or sketching, and focused on that. Or how she would take comfort in her dog that was given to her. I'm not sure if that was the Author was trying to go for, but it spoke to me, how there always seemed to be something good in her life, even through all the bad. It reminds me of one of my favorite quotes in The Hunger Games series. 

Overall, I really enjoyed this book. Ill give it... 6 out of 10. I strongly recommend.
