Across the Universe – by Beth Revis
Check Library Catalog
Science Fiction/Romance. When 17-year-old Amy submits to being cryogenically frozen, she expects to be awakened 300 years in the future, along with her parents, on the planet that will be their new home. But someone on the spaceship Godspeed nearly kills her by unplugging her cryo chamber 50 years early…and, as Amy and 16-year-old Elder, the ship’s second-in-command, soon discover, it wasn’t an accident. Narrated alternately by both Elder and Amy, this highly suspenseful read explores the rigid shipboard society of the Godspeed and, with its thrilling combination of mystery and romance, should please fans of Dom Testa’s Galahad series.
