The Fifth Wave, by Rick Yancey

5 stars

Cassie is just a regular high school girl when the first wave hits. The Others, as many people call them, arrived on Earth without clear purpose and by surprise.  Their only goal, it seems, is to wipe out the entire human population.  Cassie is all alone, fending for herself after her dad is killed and her little brother, Sammy, is taken away by the Others. Will Sammy survive, and will Cassie find him in time and be able to protect herself? This sci-fi book is exciting and fresh; a great read for anyone!
