Rick Yancey’s The 5th Wave won Red House Children’s book award!
A hugely popular choice among older voters, the book has earned Rick widespread critical acclaim amid suggestions that his trilogy could imitate the immense success of the Twilight and Hunger Games series. Sony are rumoured to be currently developing a film adaptation of the book, with Tobey Maguire as a producer.
The great thing about Red House Children’s is that the awards are voted on by kids. So that means lots of people love Mr. Yancey’s The 5th Wave. This award was given some time in February.
Congrats Rick Yancey!
