Beth Revis
Across the Universe

Amy is floating, dreaming and waking with no sense of time, but upon awakening her life really goes downhill.

Amy's family is in cryogenic stasis on a colonizing spaceship, Elder is the leader-in-training of the ship's non-frozen inhabitants. Someone left Amy to die, rescued by Elder, they team up to solve the mystery of the killings and the future of the ship's population. This teen dystopia novel asks the hard questions--What makes a good leader? How far will you go to save your way of life? What do children owe their parents? Does diversity cause discord? Good sci-fi plot with believable characters.
