Waiting On Wednesday (89)

My pick this week is:

Across the Universe by Beth Revis (January 11, 2011)
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.  (Cover from Amazon/summary from Goodreads. May not be final; if changed I'll correct it here.)
This one looks like it's going to be epic and possible one of my favorite books of '11 if my predication is, in fact, correct. I mean, not only do I think the premise sounds pretty spiffy but the cover is stunning with a capital S. Now all I have to do is waiting for January 2011 to get here. :)
