The 5th Wave
Author: Rick Yancey
480 pages

I believe the theme of The 5th Wave is to get close to one before you trust them. I think this is the theme because when the main character, Cassie, meets a person, Evan, she begins to like him, but she knows she can't trust him yet because he may be an "other". As the story continues, Cassie begins to get close as their trust builds and they make it to the base her brother, Sammy, is at.
"'We don't know these guys,' .... 'they could be just another bunch of twigs...'" -Rick Yancey

"Never trust anyone until they have proven to you that they can be trusted." -Unknown

Creative Response #1
This image represents the book in my opinion. I invision the sight looking just like this. As a matter o fact, when Cassie is in the beginning is alone in the woods trying to protect herself from the others and this is how it described. This picture has the woods where Cassie learns to defend herself. As well as the darkness to set the tone. She runs through woods so that she can get food for her family and this image describes it perfectly.
Creative Response #2
The part of text that I found most intruining was when Cassie had seen someone that had been shot and she didn't know whether or not to shoot him. He had told her to shot him and she did so, not trusting him. She didn't trust him because he had something in his hand that he would not let go of. That ended up being a cross. I found this intruiging because it was one of the first most intense tings and it added mystery. It was fun to read and was described greatly. In this part I really enjoyed it because it really relates to the theme of not trusting one. This section was interesting and mysterious which lead it to be one of the best parts of the book for me.
