The Next Big Thing

by: 
Pam, Standley Lake Library

The Fifth Wave by Rick Yancey is the new IT title.  Get on the hold list now before it explodes and keep your eye out for Lucky Day copies.  I started the title last night and could barely put it down to sleep. Cassie is alone, totally alone.  In this sci fi alien invasion novel, Cassie must do the unthinkable - trust - in order to save her brother! Goodreads describes the book as "The Passage Meets Ender's Game."

From the book:

"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."
