A love out of time. A spaceship built of secrets and murder.

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.

Amy is a normal 17 year old girl she has (had) a boyfriend who she loves, and goes (went) to school, but Amy is going to be frozen for the next 300 years with her parents, and be packed away on Godspeed a very large spaceship. She is supposed to awake with her parents, on a new planet, what she's not supposed to do is be woken up 50 years earlier and almost die because someone broke open her case. Amy is terrified, and well freaking out. She can’t be re-frozen, it’s too risky, now she must find out who is murdering people on the ship, before her parents, or she becomes their next victims.

Across the Universe was much better than I thought it was going to be, the chapters flip back and forth between being in Amy's perspective and being in Elder's perspective. I found myself not being able to put this amazing read down, throughout the whole book you can’t help, but feel like you’re part of the story. I thought Across the Universe was going to be heavily romance based, when really the romance took a far back seat to the crazy amounts of suspense and mystery. Across the Universe had me stumped, I could not for the life of me figure out who was killing people on the ship, and I never knew what was going to happen next. Godspeed is a ship built on secrets and lies, which made for a never boring moment in Across the Universe.

Amy and Elder are both great characters, and I loved seeing from both their perspectives! Amy is strong willed and knows what she wants and isn’t afraid to speak her mind, even if it means what she is saying could risk her life. Then there is Elder, he is mesmerized by how different Amy is from everyone, and can’t seem to stop thinking about her. Eldest tells Elder she is trouble, that she’s a ‘freak’, but that doesn’t change Elder’s mind, to him she is perfect.

Overall this was an outstanding YA, Sci-fi thriller with a touch of romance, and I would recommend it to anyone who likes sci-fi, or YA novels! Beth Revis wrote a novel that will capture its readers and completely blow their minds with all the secrets and lies hidden on Godspeed! Across the Universe is a novel that has a lot of praise and is highly recommended, after finishing it I can easily understand why it is a favorite to so many people!

"I want to take her into my arms and hold her tight. But at the same time, I know that is the exact opposite of what she wants. She wants to be free, and all I want is to hold her tight against me."

“I never thought about how important the sky was until I didn't have one.”

“And in her smile I see something more beautiful than the stars.”
