The Sleeper and the Spindle by Neil Gaiman
This is a retelling of the Sleeping Beauty story with several major twists. I usually love Neil Gaiman's writing for kids and teens. However, I was slightly disappointed by this story. I believe it probably had to do with listening to it on audio. The audio had sound effects that were very, very distracting from the story. It also had odd pauses throughout the narration. The twists were interesting so I think if I had read the print version I would have liked it better.
