As a result, they may have a small mark through the UPC bar code or a small mark on the side of the book. This is simply to mark the books so they cannot be sent back to a publisher. Because of this, bargain books are non returnable to TRW unless they are damaged. Please consider this before ordering.

Prematurely awakened from her frozen sleep in Across the Universe (rev. 3/11), Sol-Earth-born Amy is having trouble adjusting to claustrophobic life aboard the generation ship Godspeed. Now that their sixteen-year-old leader (and Amy's love-interest) Elder has discontinued the drug that kept the populace subdued, the workers are getting rebellious -- a situation not helped by Elder's discovery that the ship is not merely limping along behind schedule, it has actually stopped. Meanwhile, Elder's homicidal predecessor, Orion (now frozen for his crimes), left behind a trail of encoded clues for Amy, hinting at a secret to be discovered and a choice Amy will have to make. But someone is tampering with the clues, and Amy and Elder are both caught up in the growing threat of violence on board the ship. Although the "puzzle" contained in Revis's narrative is less organic than the mystery in the previous book, it keeps readers enthralled with solid construction and a fast pace. The moral quandaries brought to the fore by shipboard life -- how to balance social order against individual rights, safety against freedom -- seem a natural extension of the concerns raised in the first book, and the ending, a resolution of one tension and the introduction of a whole new set of others, is perfect for the middle book in an intended trilogy. anita l. burkam Copyright 2012 Horn Book Magazine Reviews.

Gr 10 Up—In this sequel to Across the Universe (Penguin, 2011), it's been more than three months since Elder woke Amy from her cryogenic state. In that time, life on Godspeed has become increasingly dangerous and unpredictable. Since Elder demanded that the tranquilizing drug Phydus be removed from the water supply, people have awakened to their real emotions, and many are violent, angry, or depressed. Elder is faced with the very real possibility of rebellion, which he doesn't have time for because he's desperately trying to figure out what has gone wrong with the ship's engines. Also, food supplies are running low and the ship is beginning to break down. Meanwhile, Amy has found clues left for her by the murderous Orion that will lead her to a truth kept secret for many years. The first half of A Million Suns drags: the mystery that Amy is trying to solve isn't initially terribly compelling, and her relationship with Elder doesn't develop much more than in the previous book. However, his character begins to be fleshed out a bit more as he wrestles with what it means to be a leader, though this sequel isn't as strong as the first book, readers who stick with it will find themselves engrossed by the second half, and, thanks to the cliff-hanger ending, will be anxious to follow up with the third installment.—Heather M.
