Amy and her
parents have been cryogenically frozen, expecting to
awaken 300 years in the future when the spaceship
Godspeed arrives on a new planet, Centauri-Earth.
Instead, Amy is unplugged and almost killed 50 years
before the ship’s scheduled landing. She finds
herself in a very different society than the one she
left, which is inhabited by passive people, led by a
tyrannical dictator. Worried that her parents
might be the murderer’s next victims, Amy joins with
another teen, Elder, who is next in line to be leader of
the ship, to unravel the mystery of who is trying to
kill the other frozen passengers. They end up
discovering that the people are being drugged and lied
to by the ship’s leader. The novel is told in
alternating chapters by the two teens, which shows their
different points of view. You will want to keep reading
to see what secrets are revealed next and if Amy and
Elder find the murderer and save Amy’s parents and the
other frozen passengers.
A love out of time. A spaceship built of secrets and murder. When Amy is frozen aboard the interstellar spaceship Godspeed, she expects to be woken in 300 years on a new planet. Instead, someone wakes her up early…and if Amy doesn’t figure out why soon, the next people they wake up might not survive–including her parents. (Booktalk by New Hampshire Flume committee)
