Entangled Teen
 Summary from Goodreads:
Cassie Dannacher wakes up in a hospital over 1,000 years into the future after her space capsule is retrieved from space. She soon learns that 600 years prior to her arrival, the earth was struck by a plague, killing over half of the world’s population. Na├»ve and desperate, Cassie, who longs for home and is having trouble adjusting to the new, dictatorial 31st century government, is comforted by Michael Bennett, the 20-year old lead geneticist at the hospital where she was revived.


 But why is Cassie in genetics’ hospital in the first place, and why do several of the people around her seem so familiar, including Travel Carson, the hot and edgy boy she is fated to meet? Soon she discovers there is a sinister answer to all of her questions – and that they want something from Cassie that only she can give.

Jennifer's Review

I was totally taken in by the amazing cover and concept for this story – living in the current age and then waking up 1000 years later!

Well that's exactly what happens to Cassie, after a terrible accident  they preserve her body till she can be healed. When they wake Cassie up its 1000 years later -- she awakes to a different world, with different priories and really no one to help guide her through it. You can go almost as far to she that she had no true person on her side in the beginning. While the discovery process was good, it could of been so much more -- we did  get to see  advances in technology and medicine,  but not much exploration of this new world as I was hoping for. For the most part - the book took place in one setting. I am assuming that in the next book we get to explore the new world more and we see that over 1000 years more advances occurred?

The book goes to some pretty dark places (lots of unseen twists & turns) but thankfully there was a decent happy ever after -- sure there things that were left unsolved but you were left with hope for the main characters -- Cassie & Michael. Overall a promising start to a new series.
