Rick Yancey’s forthcoming science-fiction young adult novel THE 5TH WAVE has received starred reviews from Booklist, Publisher’s Weekly, and Kirkus Reviews.

Booklist calls THE 5TH WAVE “ambitious” and “sure thing for reviewers and readers alike.” Publisher’s Weekly calls it “gripping” and exclaims that “Yancey’s aim is every bit as good as [the main character] Cassie’s.” Kirkus, who hasn’t posted their review online yet, claims THE 5TH WAVE is “nothing short of amazing.”

THE 5TH WAVE will be published May 7, 2013 by G.P. Putnam & Sons.
