THIS BOOK IS ABOUT: Alien invasions (yes, in waves, this book starts as the 5th wave of invasions is happening). True love. Survival. Lots more, we loved it!

GREAT DISCUSSION OF THIS BOOK ON UnLeashing Readers blog here.
FAVORITE QUOTE: (Cassie, main character): “But if I’m it, the last of my kind, the last page of human history, like hell I’m going to let the story end this way. I may be the last one, but I am the one still standing. I am the one turning to face the faceless hunter in the woods on an abandoned highway. I am the one not running but facing. Because if I am the last one, then I am humanity. And if this is humanity’s last war, then I am the battlefield.”
