"Seventeen-year-old Amy joins her parents as frozen cargo aboard the vast spaceship Godspeed and expects to awaken on a new planet, three hundred years in the future. Never could she have known that her frozen slumber would come to an end fifty years too soon and that she would be thrust into the brave new world of a spaceship that lives by its own rules.
Amy quickly realizes that her awakening was no mere computer malfunction. Someone--one of the few thousand inhabitants of the spaceship--tried to kill her. And if Amy doesn't do something soon, her parents will be next.

Now Amy must race to unlock Godspeed's hidden secrets. But out of her list of murder suspects, there's only one who matters: Elder, the future leader of the ship and the love she could never have seen coming."

My Thoughts:

I became 100% percent absorbed in the story. I connected with the two main characters Amy and Elder. Amy is a seventeen year old girl who was frozen 3 centuries ago along with her parents. Elder is a twenty year old boy who grew up on the ship Godspeed. They two meet after Amy is unfrozen… and she is almost killed. Together the two of them try to figure out why and who unplugged Amy and who is still on the lose and act.

There is a lot of emotions going on throughout Across The Universe by Beth Revis. She did an amazing job describing the ship and all the different levels. I loved Amy and Elder. I am looking forward to seeing where this series goes in the next installment A Million Suns which isn’t set to come out until the Spring of 2012.  There is also an third installment sent to come out in 2013.

I hope to see more of Amy and Elder’s relationship evolve into love.Also I won this book from Kristi at The Story Siren. So thank you again Kristi and Beth for letting win this amazing book!!

So with that being said I think you would be crazy not to pick up a copy of Across The Universe NOW!!! 5/5 stars!!!
