9780099417231: Watching the Roses (Definitions)

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?
