A Million Suns by Beth Revis

Goodreads Summary:

Godspeed was fueled by lies. Now it is ruled by chaos.
It's been three months since Amy was unplugged. The life she always knew is over. And everywhere she looks, she sees the walls of the spaceship Godspeed. But there may just be hope: Elder has assumed leadership of the ship. He's finally free to enact his vision - no more Phydus, no more lies.
But when Elder discovers shocking news about the ship, he and Amy race to discover the truth behind life on Godspeed. They must work together to unlock a puzzle that was set in motion hundreds of years earlier, unable to fight the romance that's growing between them and the chaos that threatens to tear them apart.
In book two of the Across the Universe trilogy, New York Times bestselling author Beth Revis mesmerizes us again with a brilliantly crafted mystery filled with action, suspense, romance, and deep philosophical questions. And this time it all builds to one mind-bending conclusion: They have to get off this ship.
My Review:
It has been 3 months the death of Eldest. Elder is now leading the ship and it is not going very well.

I loved this book. I couldn't put it down. I love the dual point of view between Elder and Amy. There were some surprises and we found out that some of the information in book 1 was not correct.

I felt really bad for Amy. The people on the ship did not trust her or want her there. She had to be very careful of her own safety. She grew up with the world being one way and woke up with the world being totally different. She wanted Elder to change the ship's world to be like the one she grew up on. I understand why she wanted to do that but you can't totally change everything overnight.

I also felt really bad for Elder. He was thrust into a position of leadership that he wasn't ready for. The people questioned his every decision and even resorted to violence. He wanted to do the right thing. He thought he was doing the right thing by taking the people off of Phydus but he didn't have the knowledge and skills needed to help the people stay off of it. He did make the tough decisions and I was really impressed by the compromise he came to in the end.

The only complaint I have about this book is that I have to wait a whole frexing year to find out how it ends.
