The Friday 56 (57) The Wide-Awake Princess by E.D. Baker

Synopsis from Goodreads...

In this new stand-alone fairy tale, Princess Annie is the younger sister to Gwen, the princess destined to be Sleeping Beauty. When Gwennie pricks her finger and the whole castle falls asleep, only Annie is awake, and only Annie—blessed (or cursed?) with being impervious to magic—can venture out beyond the rose-covered hedge for help. She must find Gwen's true love to kiss her awake.

But who is her true love? The irritating Digby? The happy-go-lucky Prince Andreas, who is holding a contest to find his bride? The conniving Clarence, whose sinister motives couldn't possibly spell true love? Joined by one of her father's guards, Liam, who happened to be out of the castle when the sleeping spell struck, Annie travels through a fairy tale land populated with characters both familiar and new as she tries to fix her sister and her family . . . and perhaps even find a true love of her own...

The Wide-Awake Princess (Wide-Awake Princess, #1)"Tomas didn't look as if he believed her, so after tucking him in beside Clara, Annie assured him again, then didn't leave until he had fallen asleep. When it had been quiet downstairs for some time, Annie crept to the trapdoor and lifted it ever so slowly."--The Wide-Awake Princess by E.D. Baker
