About the Author

Anna Sheehan says of A Long, Long Sleep, her first novel, "I always thought the interesting thing about Sleeping Beauty wasn't why she was put to sleep, but what she had to come to terms with afterward. Everything would have changed radically--technology and politics as well as social structure. She would have seemed like a foreigner in her own country." Anna Sheehan lives in rural Oregon.

Reviews

With well-developed characters, a touch of romance, and a believable future that, for once, is not entirely dystopian, Sheehan's tale should please many readers.
--Publishers Weekly

This is a fun, fast read...It is a fairy tale without a classic happy ending. The book addresses serious issues including what makes a "person," in addition to classic YA subjects such as first love, making it a wonderful title for a book talk, a reading list, or a class discussion.
--VOYA

This debut novel doesn't shy away from exploring the dangers of powerful conglomerates and the ways technology can be abused, but, ultimately, it's a bittersweet story of lost love, dreams, and of finding one's place in the world.
--School Library Journal

Whether comparing Rose's story to other Briar Rose and Sleeping Beauty variants, wondering about her complicated situation or simply enjoying the thrilling suspense, readers will hope that Rose can find some happiness ever after in a complex world.
