A Kiss In Time

A Kiss In Time by Alex Flinn A-

"Talia fell under a spell...Jack broke the curse.
I was told to beware the accursed spindle, but it was so enchanting, so hypnotic...
I was looking for a little adventure the day I ditched my tour group. But finding a comatose town, with a hot-looking chick asleep in it, was so not what I had in mind.
I awakened in the same place but in another time—to a stranger's soft kiss.
I couldn't help kissing her. Sometimes you just have to kiss someone. I didn't know this would happen.
Now I am in dire trouble because my father, the king, says I have brought ruin upon our country. I have no choice but to run away with this commoner!
Now I'm stuck with a bratty princess and a trunk full of her jewels...The good news: My parents will freak!
Think you have dating issues? Try locking lips with a snoozing stunner who turns out to be 316 years old. Can a kiss transcend all—even time?
-Back of the book.

I really did enjoy this book but it could never compare to my favorite book by this author, Beastly. I find it really cleaver how Alex Flinn messes with fairy tales and makes them modern. There are other stories like that but she's the best at making them more real. This book had some nice humor to it, Talia is knows nothing about the real world and it's really funny when she tries to figure out simple thing like a light switch or a sell phone. Shes real snobby at the beginning and it's always nice to see character growth as the story goes on. A fun read by one of favorite authors.
