    In the science fiction book The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey; Cassie, Ben, and all the other human's lives changed completely on the day the aliens started to make their appearance. I thought the book was a bit of a disappointment because in the beginning I thought it was going to be about how the aliens take over, but the aliens hid in plain sight and acted normal. The people running the camps also seemed too calm about the invasion. There was also not too much action going on (especially in Cassie and Evan's point of views), for example for about all of chapter 36 Cassie was just talking with Evan. So, I rate it three out of five stars. Throughout the book there are different point of views. There was Ben's (aka Zombie) who was the high school football star, but in the end he turned out to be a leader and a solider named Zombie. There was also Cassie who had her whole family , but slowly they one by one trickled away from her. Her mom was dead by the third wave and her dad was killed by some very deceiving men. Then there was Sammy who was taken on a school bus to a "safe" place and was never to be seen again by Cassie possibly until the end. There was also Evan who was supposed to be full on alien, but he still had a little bit of human left in him, which is why he didn't kill Cassie. And last but not least there was Sammy, Cassie's little brother, who was taken to the camp Wright-Patterson to be kept safe, but it was more like an army training camp to toughen kids up. The kinds of people who would like to read this book is people who can follow many perspectives at once and who like reading about alien invasions on totally different level. All these kids think they know everything and honestly they know just the opposite of what's happening.

    In most banks cash is not welcome. Some magazine vendors also only take credit cards now.

    The book I read was The Candymakers by Wendy Mass. The book is about four kids who are competing to win the Confectionary contest by making a unique candy. The kids all have different reasons why they want to be in the competition. I enjoyed reading The Candymakers because there is different creations and all the characters have a different story. I could see the scenes vividly in my mind while I was reading. The Candymakers is realistic fiction because this could also happen in real life. Anyone could read this book because there is diverse topics like friendships and people being deceiving. It's a candy creation contest but not everyone is there for just that. An internal conflict is when Logan tried fighting the urge climb a tree in the Tropical Room. He loves the smells in that room and he wants to climb the tree ,but he knows his parents won't let him and he has to wait until he's older. An example of external conflict in the book is when the bees in the honey room start producing different tasting honey. Most of the candy in the factory is produced with honey ,so when the honey doesn't taste right then the candy won't taste the same. Luckily Logan figured out a way to get the bees back to normal.
