In this retelling of "Sleeping Beauty," Alice seems destined to lead a princess's life--except for the frightening curse that dreaded Aunt Violette bestowed at her christening: She will die at the age of eighteen. Although she lives, something horrible happens on her eighteenth birthday. And as a result, Alice falls into a trancelike state and refuses to speak to anyone. Will she ever recover?

Product Description:

The second part of a trilogy, following on "The Tower Room". Loosely based on the "Sleeping Beauty" fairy tale, it tells the story of Alice in a diary written after she has gone into her "hundred year sleep".

From the Inside Flap:

This haunting tale of treachery and betrayal is the second book in the exciting Egerton Hall trilogy.
Once Megan, Bella and Alice shared a room. The Tower Room was theirs alone, remote from the rest of Egerton Hall School, and here they formed a deep friendship which would continue long after they left their enchanted world. But now something is very wrong with Alice - poisoned by dark memories and unable to speak to a single soul. It seems that the ill-wishing placed on her has come true. Even her closest friends don't seem able to save her from the nightmare.
