Waiting on Wednesday: Across the Universe by Beth Revis

Across the Universe by Beth Revis
Release date: Januray 11, 2011

A 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.

Oh my goodness GORGEOUS COVER. This cover has lots of gorgeous purple and pink, plus it looks very sparkly, and I am easily drawn in by that. Otherwise, I love the sound of this book because it sounds like pure science fiction, and I feel like there isn't a lot of science fiction targeted at young adult readers. Sure, there's a lot of paranormal, dystopian, steam punk and fantasy YA literature out there, but I think the genre could use more hardcore science fiction, and it looks like Across the Universe will help fill this gap.

What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill of Breaking the Spine.
