Apparently, aliens are the YA topic of the summer. The bookstore where I work did a big push for this book, even gave away samples. I saw promos all over Goodreads, and there was a glowing review in Entertainment Weekly. Truthfully, The 5th Wave did live up to the hype. It’s the story of the aftermath of an alien invasion. Most of humankind has been killed off, and those who are left don’t know who they can trust, because the aliens…are inside us.
There’s really great characters and the book is full of action. I didn’t realize that aliens were the new trend, but I’m about halfway through another YA book featuring alien invasion (In the After) that comes out later in June.
