Beth Revis books - Across the Universe reading levels

The first two ACROSS THE UNIVERSE books have both made it to the New York Times Best Seller lists, and we expect the final book to make make it too.  A good combination of scifi and chick-lit. 

(Across the Universe #1)

**Starred Review** Kirkus
Scifi based, the action takes place on a colossally large spaceship without FLT travel. Important people are frozen. The rest of the ship has citizens that carry on with agriculture and what-not in depressing circumstances. Wasn't supposed to be like that but something went wrong a few generations back... but what?

This one has a bit of romance, some adventure, and some good mysteries to solve. Across the Universe was a good read. A Million Suns did not please as many people.
