Parents should be aware that this book contains:
• Profanity (d*mn, sh*te, one b*tch and *sshole each, and “frex”)
• Sexuality (kissing, reference to past sexual activity, public sexuality, sexual attraction, and nudity)
• Violence (murder, mildly gruesome descriptions, and attempted rape with some details)
• Reference to incest
• Sedative drugs
Across the Universe is a mashup of young adult mystery thriller, science fiction, and romance. This first book in a trilogy alternates narratives between the two main characters. The story should be appropriate for teens as most of the sexuality and violence are significant to the story.
