THE 5th WAVE
Yancey’s world is so realistic, yet so different from ours, that readers will forget they even hold a book in their hands. The alien-controlled universe is the high point of the novel, hands down. Not even the smallest detail is left out. The characters are great, too; especially Cassie, her little brother and the soldier named Zombie. Their bravery is awe-inspiring, and readers will love them for it. The first third of the novel is a little slow, but stick with it — you will not be disappointed.
