It's Zinnia Gray's twenty-first birthday, which is extra-special because it's the last birthday she'll ever have. When she was young, an industrial accident left Zinnia with a rare condition. Not much is known about her illness, just that no one has lived past twenty-one.

Her best friend Charm is intent on making Zinnia's last birthday special with a full sleeping beauty experience, complete with a tower and a spinning wheel. But when Zinnia pricks her finger, something strange and unexpected happens, and she finds herself falling through worlds, with another sleeping beauty, just as desperate to escape her fate.

USA Today bestselling author Alix E. Harrow's A Spindle Splintered brings her patented charm to a new version of a classic story.

Review of 'A Spindle Splintered' on 'Goodreads'

5 stars

I borrowed this book from the library and read it in a day.
It was a good read,about sleeping beauty,more like in our era.
The characters in this book are really likeable.
If Princess and Princes are your thing, fairy tales,and fantasy,this is a one to read. It even has humid to it.

I intend to read more of the author's books in the future.
