5th Wave


Bibliographic Information:Yancey, Rick. The 5th Wave. London: Penguin, 2013. Print.

Brief Annotation: Cassie has survived the first four waves of attacks from the Others. Now she is on her own and scared that she is the last human left alive. Can she survive the 5th wave? And more importantly, does she want to?

Genre: Science Fiction

Grade Level: 6-8

Readers who will like this: Students who like dystopian novels, students who enjoyed The Hunger Games

Rating/Response: 5 I really enjoyed this book, as I am a fan of other dystopian novels.  I found this book to be fast-paced and exciting. The 5th Wave does have a smattering of strong language and a number of violent scenes. Many middle school students would enjoy this book.

One question you would ask before a read aloud: How would you feel if you thought you were the last human alive?
