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.

This was an interesting sci fi adventure. The beginning of a trilogy, and I wish the others were available on audio. Don't be put off by the cover here, it's the wrong picture.

An interesting dystopian teen novel. Amy, cryogenically frozen with her parents for centuries as the spaceship, Godspeed, heads towards a new space colony is awoken early from her slumber. Who unplugged her and why? Many cultural norms have changed in the society on the ship. Amy works with the incumbent ruler, Elder, to try and uncover the secrets and lies of this centuries old fledgling society. A very long listen, but there are some worthwhile issues covered in the plot line.
