Oh. My. Frexing. Goodness. If I could give any more stars to Beth Revis’ Across the Universe, I would. Sci-Fi? Check. Romance? Check. Girl stuck on a space journey for X amount of time, traveling towards a new planet? Check. Amy and her parents signed up for a trip towards a new habitable Earth. Well, her parents really signed up, and Amy wanted to go with her parents. Some engineers cryogenically froze her and she would be awoke in fifty years. At least, that’s what she thought.

Elder is soon to be the next Eldest of the ship Godspeed. Eldest has been training Elder, so that one day, he will be Eldest. Elder is oblivious to the ship’s secrets, and Eldest want to keep it that way. So, when Amy is suddenly unplugged from her frozen slumber, she’s labeled a distraction. Elder, however, believes she is the most amazing thing he’s ever seen. He vows to keep her safe, no matter what.

Amy is horribly upset. She was forcibly woken up, wakes up on a cold, metal ship, filled with…weird people, and she’s not the only person getting woke up. Somebody else is killing random people and it’s up to her to figure out why. But, in order for her to figure out what’s really going on around the ship, she enlists Harley, an amazing painter with a tragic loss, and Elder. Eldest is not pleased. Amy is ruining his ships’ system and will stop her, at all costs.

This book has plenty of mood twisters. I have to say that this is the first time that I almost cried while reading a book. I know it sounds weird, but I’m one of those people who shows very little emotions! Haha. A couple of the scenes in the book will make you gasp, laugh, shout in anger, and more. Now that I think about it, this book seems like an exercise!  This book also has multiple genres all wrapped together beautifully! Romance, mystery, adventure, suspense, are just a few of them. Beautiful read!
