Across the Universe

Heyyyy. I went to the pool today for the first time since last year! It was sooo much fun!
But now back to the books... I finished Across the Universe by Beth Revis, it was sooo good!!! So here's the review. I think I'm gonna start using the actual books summaries instead of writing my own...

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.
Well first of all, this summary was soooooooo much more confusing than the actual book, so don't be fooled! This book was absolutely amazing. It captured me from the beginning and kept me throughout the whole thing! The plot was so completely unique and infecting, I couldn't stop reading! The way the book was written was amazing too, it wasn't too serious or too cheerful, it was just write for the book. Amy is such an amazing character. She was so determined and even though things went completely, and I mean completely wrong, she kept her head held high and found a way to make things better.
Then there's Elder. And Elder was awesomeeee. He was basically the only person on the ship that had been there from the start and yet deep down, he knew what was going on wasn't right. And once Amy came along, he didn't hold back, he made sure that people knew what he was standing up for. And in the end it payed off. The beginning of the book was really good, the middle a little muggy, but still good! And the end was amazing, it was something I never saw coming. So overall, I loved it!

Stars: 5
