"I want to take her into my arms and hold her tight. But at the same time, I know that is the exact opposite of what she wants. She wants to be free, and all I want is to hold her tight against me."
~ Elder

Across the Universe by Beth Revis suprised me, I normally try to steer clear of Sci-fi or Dystopia books (nothing personal there just usually not my favorite) but this book...was EPIC. Amy is a normal 17 year old girl she has (had) a boyfriend who she loves, and goes (went) to school and all that...but Amy..is going to be frozen for the next 300 years with her parents. She is suppose to awake with her parents, on a new planet, what she's not suppose to do is be woken up 50 years earlier and almost die because someone broke open her case...she is scared, and well freaking out. she cant be re frozen, its too risky, now she must find out who is murdering people on the ship..before time runs out. Across the Universe was much better then i thought it was going to be, the chapters flip back and forth between being in Amy's head and being in Elder's head. I found myself not being able to put this amazing read down, threw out the whole book you cant help but feel like your part of the story, most books that have a mystery in them, are always obivis who did it..but in this book i was kinda stummped. (kinda i knew half of what was gonna happen ahead of time but there was still a HUGE twist) I couldnt help but hate that there wasnt more romance though, it was mainly alot of suspense, mystery, and well just weirdness too. Amy and Elder are both great characters, Amy is strong willed and knows what she wants and isnt afraid to speak her mind, even if it means what she is saying could risk her life...and Elder, he is mesmerized by how different Amy is from everyone and cant keep her off his mind...no matter how much Eldest tells him to stay clear from the "freak" Elder knows she isnt one..in his mind she is nothing but perfect.

-I was very surprised that this book is going to be a series, when i finished the book i thought it was going to be a stand alone, but YAY for it going to be a trilogy (:!!
--A Million Suns (Across the Universe #2) By Beth Revis is expected to come out in 2012.
