Summary (From the publisher):

Alice, Bella, and Megan- the three friends introduced in The Tower Room- had been eagerly awaiting Alice's eighteenth birthday party, which promised to be an elaborate affair befitting the "princess of the Castle next door." Yet soon after the last guest has departed, Alice lies cocooned in her childhood bedroom- as if in a coma- silent to everyone except her diary.

Alice seemed destined for a fairy-tale existence. But her wonderful life has been marred by a frightening prophecy: at Alice's christening, her dreaded aunt Violette burst in and presented the infant with a chilling "gift," cursing her to die at the age of eighteen. On the night of her eighteenth birthday party, it looks as if this ill-wishing just might come true...

Inspired by "Sleeping Beauty," Watching the Roses is a lyrical work that puts a modern twist on the classic fairy tale- the heroine must ultimately save herself.
