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. 

A stunning debut. I have heard nothing but good reviews about ACROSS THE UNIVERSE , a book that had been on my to be read shelf for a while. Once I started reading the book I could tell why so many love this novel. It was extraordinary story. Space, love, secrets and mysterious murder, how can you not get curious about a story like that? I haven’t read many books about space, but seen few movies and that’s what I loved about ACROSS THE UNIVERSE, it took a place on a spaceship, how cool is that? Even if ship turned out to be filled with nothing but lies. The general idea of the story was amazing and I couldn’t pull myself away from the story. You will feel connected with characters not long after you start the book, you will start wondering what’s in store for them next. Especially Amy & Elder. ACROSS THE UNIVERSE will suck you into their adventure, secrets from start to the end.

Amy & Elder: I believe that reason the story worked out so well, because it was written from two points of view, a girl and a boy and who were completely opposite from one another. While you read the novel, you will notice the significance change between the two of characters and how they change, especially Elder. I loved Amy because of her attitude, how she didn’t let anyone boss her around and she wasn’t afraid to express how she felt when she saw something that she knew wasn’t right. I could see that there was some sort of connection between Elder and Amy from the start, maybe because Elder was one person who was nice to her and didn’t treat her like a freak, after she was unplugged. He was one person, beside Harley who was always there for her. The two of them had a connection. Now I do wonder what’s going to happen between two of them, now that he is leader. Of course the most important question of all, will they actually land? Or will something else go wrong?

The cover took my breath away. If the summary won’t draw you in the story, cover will. Just look at it and tell me that you aren’t at least a little bit curious. If I didn’t come across a summary first I think that the cover would get me to pick up the book. It’s beautiful how they look as if they are floating in the space. The cover is almost telling you the story, the one that will make you curious and have you eager to pick up the book. I give ACROSS THE UNIVERSE a A+ and if I could rate it more than 5 stars, I would. A book that I wish I picked up earlier. One of best.
