Realistic (fiction), Trade Book, Lexile 820
For as long as she could remember, Becca loved listening to her grandmother's unusual version of "Sleeping Beauty." Becca always had a sneaking suspicion that the mystery of Gemma's young life, which no one seemed to know anything about, was somehow wrapped up in the tale of the sleeping princess. After Gemma's death, Becca, now a journalist, travels to Poland to investigate her grandmother's past. Slowly, she unravels the tragic and frightening facts of her grandmother's survival of a Nazi extermination camp and her escape to America.
