Highlight: The Fifth Wave by Rick Yancey

Another one of my book reviews is up on Literature Approved!

I read this book for my own personal pleasure and was not required to write a review. Therefore, all comments and opinions are entirely my own.


Cassie Sullivan’s life is much like anyone else’s: she has a loving family, a hard-core crush on a football player and attends an average high school. All this changes when the Others arrive and the world starts to end. The Others (or aliens) enact 5 waves to wipe humans off the planet. The first three waves succeed in killing half of Earth’s population. After the fourth wave, Cassie and her brother, Sam, are orphans. When the two siblings get separated, Cassie begins a journey with Evan, her rescuer from a dangerous shoot-out, to find her brother. Ben, Cassie’s high school crush, survives the third wave and is taken to Camp Haven where children are trained to fight the Others and where his bitterness toward them is fostered. Both Cassie and Ben will do all they can not only to survive, but to fight.


What if everything had been taken away from you by mysterious creatures? What if you were then given a choice: to hide or to fight?
