Synopsis: 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
Cover: The cover is ok. Precisely how I imagined Amy. However the Hardcover is my favorite.
Book: A bookish friend gifted and ordered AtU[Across the Universe] for me at the bookdepository.Thanks Shelaugh

There are some spoilers in this review but hidden like so Example given
Atu was exiting, romantic, perilous, a mystery. I quite Loved it.Liked how Amy and Elder's chapters were so different.Heck there from two different world you could say.Literally.
The first 100 pages were ok. Just ok. BUT after the 100 page mark.It got better, splendor more spirited
I did not despise her but not really liked her at first.But along the way I started to feel for her , to care for and got a thing for Red heads<*wink*wink*^-^[what i love gingers]
I was so happy to 'meet' Elder. I know we could be best budds[me crazy right.I just have that'Was up buddie' feeling] He was not just a romantic interest but a well rounded character. He loves to learn.Has the right "stuff" to be a great leader. I know your scared at times. But you can do it Elder. You can do it Bro. Cause I 'believe' in you. Ya hear.
I loved the romance[I'm a male hopeless romantic]Loved the trust between Amy and Elder that came into existence.
Harley was artistic artist. A bit loony when he was in the 'zone. Lol
I imagined him using paint brushes to paint. Seeing in front of me him finishing the Koi painting; vibrant red in cool blue cooling water . And great best friend material. A true friend. I bro <3 harley.
The villain was villainous. The person who I though was doing the killing was not the killer.DUDE DUDE,OMG REALLY
Other noteworthy characters
People in the ward
