A new planet has been discovered. It is 300 years away from Earth, but humans want to make the trip. The plan is to freeze the landing team, and have the generational spaceship's crew wake them when they arrive. But things never go according to plan. Amy is woken 50 years too soon, which almost kills her. She wakes to an environment she can't understand, and people that are nothing like the humans she remembered from Earth. Befriending the only other teenager on board, Elder, who is also the future leader of the ship, Amy must uncover why the ship's inhabitants act so strangely. But as more frozen crew members are woken and killed, Amy and Elder must also find the killer and find out why they are murdering the crew -- before there is no one left to unfreeze. Across the Universe is one of the greatest young adult sci-fi novels out there, with plenty of exciting twists and an absolutely gripping storyline! - Rebecca (QBD)
