Publisher's Summary

In this 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.

Better Than Expected

Would you consider the audio edition of The Wide-Awake Princess to be better than the print version?

I would have to say that the printed version doesn't do the book enough justice. When I listened to the novel I felt so moved.

What other book might you compare The Wide-Awake Princess to and why?

I would compare this novel to other princess related fairy tale mess ups like the Princess Academy Series (not on audiobooks). I have to say I love it when authors put their own twist on novels.

Have you listened to any of Emily Bauer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have to say this is just as good as the next book in the series, which I listened to as well. She is simply amazing.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I though it was absolutely amazing. As soon as it ended I bought the second book and I kept on with the series. I absolutely love the series.

Any additional comments?

I would give this a 10 out of 10.
