In 2027, 16-year-old Tegan is just like every other girlNplaying the guitar, falling in love, and protesting the wrongs of the world with her friends. But then Tegan dies, waking up 100 years in the future as the unknowing first government guinea pig to be cryogenically frozen and successfully revived.
From the Publisher:
"In 2027, sixteen-year-old Tegan is just like every other girl--playing the guitar, falling in love, and protesting the wrongs of the world with her friends. But then Tegan dies, waking up 100 years in the future as the unknowing first government guinea pig to be cryogenically frozen and successfully revived. Appalling secrets about her new world come to light, and Tegan must choose to either keep her head down or fight for a better future"--
Annotation:
When 17-year-old Tegan Oglietti left for an environmental protest and her first date in 2027, she didn't expect to be shot, frozen, and cryogenically revived a century later in 2128. Horrified at the loss of her family and friends, Tegan struggles to understand modern-day Australia and why she's been brought back. Forced to relearn practically everything she knows, from how to use a toilet to dealing with computers that look like shiny sheets of paper, Tegan must also contend with 22nd-century Australia's political mores and strict immigration policy. At first, it seems like Tegan is part of a project that will help families of soldiers who died in combat, but she soon learns otherwise. Which side will she chose?

Praise

"The worldbuilding is thorough and expressed easily without ever lapsing into tiresome exposition. Tegan's friends are a fully realized multiracial and substantially LGBT cast, and even Tegan's whiteness is reflected upon thoughtfully." (starred review) 02/15/2013
