This weeks staff pick is Across the Universe by Beth Revis.
It’s a cryogenic nightmare. Amy decided to leave everything behind her and join her parents as a member of Project Ark Ship. The plan was to travel on the spaceship Godspeed cryogenically frozen to a new planet. The journey was to last 300 years. However, fifty years before Godspeeds’s scheduled landing, Amy is violently woken from her frozen slumber. Someone tried to murder her, but why?
Now, Amy is caught inside an enclosed world where nothing makes sense. Godspeed’s 2,312 passengers have forfeited all control to Eldest, a tyrannical and frightening leader. And Elder, Eldest’s rebellious teenage heir, is both fascinated with Amy and eager to discover whether he has what it takes to lead. Amy desperately wants to trust Elder. But should she put her faith in a boy who has never seen life outside the ship’s cold metal walls? Together they embark on a mission to discover the deadly mystery of who’s unplugging the frozens before whoever woke her tries to kill again.
