Across The Universe

This was almost a book I couldn't put down. It started out really slow but then picked up about 1/2 way through and I was reading it in the car with the sun visor light the other night.

The two main characters are Amy and Elder. The chapters go back and forth between each of them. Amy is frozen with her parents to live on a plant far, far away. They get put on a spaceship run by humans who have never been on Earth. Amy gets waken up early and is almost killed in the ice that has melted.  Elder is training to be the leader of the people on the spaceship and saves her from drowning. But as they try to figure out who tried to kill her and stop it from happening again, they find out there are lots of secrets on the spaceship.

I loved it mostly because it was a dystopian society book in hiding. It was nothing like I expected it and I almost didn't read it.
