Recommended for Readers of the Future

Across the Universe by Beth Revis

Unlike most books that catch my fancy, this one actually had to work at it. But it was in a dump (re: cardboard display) near the front and so I always saw it. The cover really is nice, and eventually I snuck a few peeks. Eventually I discovered that after all the rationalizing in my head I'd done about why I didn't want to read this book, I really ought to read this book. So I did. And I enjoyed. Very much. Amy is set to be cryogenically frozen for 300 years, but is awoken 50 years too early - and not by accident. Someone is killing the other frozens, and the only one that can help her is Elder, a boy set to take control of the ship. But everything on the ship seems to be fashioned from lies. Amy knows she can't trust anything - maybe not even Elder. There's a lot to be enjoyed here, so if you haven't visited a spaceship in a while, now is the time to do it.
