Across the UniverseBy Beth Revis
Knowing that you will live your entire life on board a spaceship in route to a new planet, a planet you will never see is a strange feeling. Knowing you will be in charge of the entire spaceship soon can’t be easy either. Yet that is the position Elder finds himself in, and when the bodies of people who aren’t supposed to wake up until they land on the new planet start being unfrozen, the spaceship has never seemed so dangerous.
