Sleeping Beauty and the Cursed Code
(The STEM Princess Series #1)
By Emma Jean
Genre: STEM Fantasy, Fairytale Retelling
Age category: Middle Grade
Release Date: 5 June, 2021
Paperback – Kindle
Sleeping Beauty’s thirteenth birthday looms on the horizon as she and her friends hole up in the cursed princess lab, determined to prove that science and technology can defeat dark magic and save the kingdom from 100 years of cursed sleep.
I thought this was a really fun, fast paced retelling. I loved the technology aspect of this story making it really relatable. This was a really quick read that all ages will love. In this story if Sleeping Beauty gets even a pin prick she will take the entire Kingdom down. I thought the part where her mom the Queen checks her over for splinters often was really cute. Even though it’s a retelling there are enough plot twists to keep you guessing. Can Sleeping Beauty use technology to beat the evil fairy? Check it out!
