Amy, her parents, and other scientists’ and soldiers’ families are cryogenically frozen on board the spaceship Godspeed to travel for 300 hundred years with the hope of populating a new planet, Centauri Earth. Things go wrong, however, and two hundred and fifty years into their trip, Amy awakens. She finds herself in a new society where someone is prematurely thawing the human cargo. Beth Revis’ Across the Universe is a fast-paced, science fiction ride with mystery, romance, and dystopian layering. The first chapter is one of the tensest, most chill-inducing openers, and the story’s rapid twists and turns make it a quick, exciting read.
