Waiting on Wednesday (75)--Across the Universe by Beth Revis
Release Date: January 11, 2011
A Story of Love, Murder, and Madness Aboard an Enormous Spaceship Bound for the Future.
Amy is a cryogenically frozen passenger aboard the vast spaceship Godspeed. She expects to wake up on a new planet, 300 years in the future. But fifty years before Godspeed's scheduled landing, Amy's cryo chamber is unplugged, and she is nearly killed.
Now, Amy is caught inside an enclosed world where nothing makes sense. Godspeed's passengers have forfeited all control to Eldest, a tyrannical and frightening leader, and Elder, his rebellious and brilliant teenage heir.
Amy desperately wants to trust Elder. But should she? All she knows is that she must race to unlock Godspeed's hidden secrets before whoever woke her tries to kill again.
Across the Universe is Titanic meets Brave New World.
I'm a not-so-closet sci fi fan, so this one sounds AMAZING! They had me at "cryogenically frozen." Can't wait for January!!
