THE 5TH WAVE by Rick Yancey

After the 1st wave, only darkness remains. After the 2nd, only the lucky escape. And after the 3rd, only the unlucky survive. After the 4th wave, only one rule applies: trust no one.

Now, it’s the dawn of the 5th wave, and on a lonely stretch of highway, Cassie runs from Them. The beings who only look human, who roam the countryside killing anyone they see. Who have scattered Earth’s last survivors. To stay alone is to stay alive, Cassie believes, until she meets Evan Walker. Beguiling and mysterious, Evan Walker may be Cassie’s only hope for rescuing her brother–or even saving herself. But Cassie must choose: between trust and despair, between defiance and surrender, between life and death. To give up or to get up.

Teenagers?No
Adults?Yes

Comments: One of my very favorite dystopian/alien invasion books EVER. I raced through it and loved every minute. THis author's writing is a bit abrupt but it didn't really bother me until book two however this book is awesome. Super well thought out and expressed. Loved it. I don't really recommend it for teens it has a lot of cussing and grown up situations and violence.
