Before you read this book, be prepared to feel the sense of loneliness, fear, and longing for the present that we live in today. Rick Yancey will make you grateful for the life you live today when you enter the apocalyptic, alien invaded world that he has created in The 5th Wave. 

"The 5th Wave" by Rick Yancey is a gripping dystopian novel set in a world devastated by alien attacks. The story follows Cassie Sullivan, a teenage girl who survives the first four waves of alien invasion that have decimated Earth's population. Now, as the fifth wave begins, Cassie must navigate a world of mistrust and danger as she fights to save herself and reunite with her younger brother. Along the way, she forms unlikely alliances and confronts the true nature of humanity in the face of extinction. As Cassie races against time to uncover the aliens' ultimate plan, she must also confront her own inner demons and find the strength to survive in a world on the brink of destruction.

Followed by two sequels, The Infinite Sea and The Last Star, The 5th Wave captures a world that looks like ours but with a hidden enemy that has taken humanity prisoner. Enter into this world and discover survival instincts you never knew you had and remember not to trust anyone you meet.
