Amazon Best Books of the Month, January 2011: As the spaceship Godspeed travels toward a new earth, the lives of 100
cryogenically frozen settlers hang in the balance after someone endeavors to quietly murder them. The other passengers
aboard the ship have never known life outside its walls and are enslaved by the machinations of Eldest, their tyrannical
leader, who divides them into three distinct classes. When Amy, a frozen settler from earth, survives being thawed in a
murder attempt, she immediately bonds with Elder, Godspeed's lone teen and future leader. Amy’s individuality, her
rebellion, and her fierce desire for freedom, inspire Elder to act on his own doubts and defy Eldest--his mentor and
keeper--with shocking results. Eldest’s methods of twisting history and altering the lives of this captive community
are a frightening echo of tyrants in our own history, and Across the Universe challenges readers to consider the impact
of unchecked power, blind trust, and the ability of one dissenting voice to make a difference.-- Seira Wilson

three levels of the ship.
