Amazing! Let us take a ride on Godspeed, a space ship where the lower level is full of frozen people awaiting life on a new planet. The top layers contain a world full of drugged people that are to keep the ship running. Elder is in training to become Eldest, a man in charge of all the people. Then there is Amy. Frozen on the ship because her parents are to one day be an important part of the new world on the new planet. She has left behind family, friends, and a boyfriend to one day awaken in 300 years to be with her parents in a new world. Then she is awoken early and can not be refrozen. She must protect the other frozens and help the drugged people live a better life. Elder loves how different she is but he has some crazy secrets too. It was a thrilling book with some real surprises and a story that really made me think. Another book where I will be anxiously awaiting its sequel.
