Across the Universe, is set in a time in the future on the ship called Godspeed. Apparently Earth is getting overpopulated and food and water are becoming scarce. The government got a group of scientists and military people to be frozen and put on ship to find a planet safe for everyone. Their mission is to land and build up sustainable life for everyone.
One of the frozen inhabitants was awaken before the time. She was seventeen year old Amy. Amy has no clue who woke her up and why.
Elder is in training to become the Eldest of the next generation. He battles his emotions towards the Eldest because of the lack of knowledge that the Eldest transfers to him. He feels that Eldest is hiding something and he wants to find out, especially when Amy woke up and she is nothing like what he has seen before.
The two will search for answers together because more and more people are being woken up by someone wanting them dead. Only the truth maybe what they don’t want to hear.
I absolutely adored this book. The writing was fantastic from beginning to end. Beth Revis, brilliantly blended the two point of views perfectly together, making the story line flow smoothly. This fast paced YA novel will make you rethink what it means to be different. I am thrilled to read the next installment.
I rate this book 5/5 stars!
