Pre Pub Book Buzz -- Across the Universe by Beth Revis

So I wanted to tell you today about Across the Universe by Beth Revis, the latest teen release gathering much buzz amongst readers. The book hits shelves on Tuesday and I think it sounds completely fabulous!

Here's the official synopsis:

A love out of time. A spaceship built of secrets and murder.

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.

See?! Aren't you excited? I know I'm dying to read it so I'll bet you are, too.

For more on Revis and Across the Universe (and for access to a sneak peek at the book) visit Revis's official site (link above) or the official book site here. And if Penguin's latest teen releases are any indication (The Replacement, Matched, and Nightshade -- just to name a few), Revis's debut is going to be rockin' awesome!
