Read from February 22 to 25, 2012

A young adult book about a teenage girl, Amy, and her parents who are cryogenically frozen in order to board Godspeed, a ship bound for a new Earth in a new solar system. The opening scene is stunning and haunting as Amy describes watching both her mother and father be frozen, and then describes being frozen herself. Chilling stuff - no pun intended! The story is a little slow at first, Amy's chapters are told from inside her frozen state, and we are introduced to Elder, a ship-born leader in training who rescues Amy when she is woken/reanimated 50 years ahead of schedule and left to drown in the cryogenic freezing liquid. The mystery lies in who woke her up early - and who is killing other frozens aboard the ship?
