So today is 1.11.11. You all know what that means, right? Today is the official release day for Across the Universe by Beth Revis! The official website for the book launched today and has a really cool detailed interactive photo of the ship, Godspeed. Also be sure to click the "downloads" button at the very top of the page to get some really cool desktop backgrounds. At 11:11 AM (eastern time) there will be an 111 page excerpt up for you to read! But read fast, it's only up for 12 hours, so it will be taken down at 11:11PM (eastern time).
For those of you who haven't heard of this book yet, here is some info for you:
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.
I also have an exclusive author video that Penguin Teen sent to a few bloggers to share with you!
