Want to read the latest in popular YA fiction? Join us for the Lamond-Riggs Library YA Book Club. Every month we’ll read a new book and meet to discuss what we thought over snacks!

This month's selection is The Fifth Wave by Rick Yancey. Cassie travels with just the essentials. First on the list: Luger, M-16, ammo, Bowie knife. Incidentals like food, water, sleeping bag and nail clippers come further down. A nondescript 16-year old, she is one of the very few people left alive on Earth. Aliens sent waves of destructive forces to eradicate humans: Cassie's family survived the 1st and 2nd waves. Her mother died in the 3rd wave (Pestilence) and her father in the 4th (Silencers). Her little brother may still be alive; he may even be safe in a military compound, as Cassie deals with the 5th wave -- a carefully orchestrated survival dance of kill or be killed.
