Title: A Long, Long Sleep
Author: Anna Sheehan
Release Date: September 15 2011
Publisher: Gollancz
Add it: GOODREADS

Synopsis:
Rosalinda Fitzroy has been asleep for 62 years when she is woken by a kiss. Locked away in the chemically-induced slumber of a stasis tube in a forgotten sub-basement, sixteen-year-old Rose slept straight through the Dark Times that killed millions and utterly changed the world she knew. Now, her parents and her first love are long dead, and Rose - hailed upon her awakening as the long-lost heir to an interplanetary empire - is thrust alone into a future in which she is viewed as either a freak or a threat. Desperate to put the past behind her and adapt to her new world, Rose finds herself drawn to the boy who kissed her awake, hoping that he can help her to start fresh. But when a deadly danger jeopardizes her fragile new existence, Rose must face the ghosts of her past with open eyes - or be left without any future at all.

Wow. This sounds amazing!! The 'having been asleep for X number of years and forced to adapt to this new way of life' reminds me of Across The Universe, but the rest is completely unique and 100% intriguing! I'm so excited for release, shame it's so far away though :(
