Today marks the release of Across the Universe by Beth Revis!! I have previously reviewed Across the Universe and you can read my thoughts about it here. This book is pretty awesome and will draw you in immediately. If you don't know anything about the book here's a short summary:
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.
Since today, 1/11/11 is the release of Across the Universe, it's publisher Penguin Teen is launching an awesome site for the book. When you visit the book's site (http://www.acrosstheuniversebook.com) you will be able to explore the ship Godspeed, the ship where the action of Across the Universe takes place. I suggest you explore the ship and search around, who knows what secrets you might find on the Godspeed.
In the video below, author Beth Revis talks about Across the Universe and explains more about the good ship Godspeed.
Along with the awesome website for Across the Universe, i09 will be hosting an exclusive 111 page excerpt from Across the Universe. But hurry up and read this excerpt because it will only be available for a short amount of time.
