Join the 5th Wave Read-Along on Wattpad This Summer


We’ve been counting down the days to The 5th Wave since it was announced last year. The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey is one of my favorite YA books, and thanks to Sony and Wattpad, readers have a fun chance to read or re-discover the sci-fi thriller this summer.

This morning, Wattpad kicked off a summer read-along of The 5th Wave. The first 100 pages of the book are unlocked for FREE to Wattpad users. Starting the week of July 14th, Sony will be hosting book chats on Twitter and Facebook with Wattpad. They will also have “some exciting surprise guests” joining for these discussions.

Stay tuned to The Young Folks to find out who those cool guests will be and for The 5th Wave read-along schedule.
