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.

Well, I'm changing my review format again. I want my reviews to be a little more detailed, which is the reason why. 

Anyways, let's get on with the review. This book takes place in space. Cool, right? The main setting is the spaceship Godspeed. The setting was created and described really well, I could almost feel like I was there.

The concept of this book is really unique. There's a mix of sci-fi, dystopian, mystery  and romance. There's just no other  book like it. The storyline is really interesting!

Characters...just amazing.

This book deals with a lot of social issues, which I loved. Seriously, I have no idea how Beth Revis could plan such an amazing story! She's a genius!

Overall, this book was amazing! One of the best this year!
