The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey

Genre: Fantasy
Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆, an all-time favorite
Total number of pages: 457

Review by: Santonio
My current book type: Fantasy

Aliens come to earth and start killing people. Some people survive and some people don’t. The main character is this girl and she is only 15 or 16 and she is all alone and she is trying to survive.

I like this book because it’s about a girl fighting aliens. She can’t trust anyone. Another thing is she can’t tell if someone is alien or human.

Three words that describe this book:
Crazy, scary, surprising

My current book type: realistic fiction

The book is about the life of a kid in the medieval times. Its also about how he wants to get away from his father.

I like that the book foreshadows a lot of the things later on and that its about medieval times. I do not like the fact that the book has really short chapters and how theirs not a lot of characters. I like the fact that the book is very interesting and has a lot of detail and action. I do not like the fact that the book is short.

Three words that describe this book:
Medieval, Funny, Crazy

My current book type: realistic fiction

the book is about a girl named Hannah that killed her self. Before she died she made thirteen tapes each explaining why she killed her self and who wher the people where that made her do that.

I like this book because it is very suspenseful. Also I think the way she did her suicidal note by making tapes. Also I liked how she will say every person the made her do this come to play.over all I like these types of suspenseful.
