    A reviewer here used "genre-bending" to describe this, and it works since it's hard to fit this in one specific category. This teen/YA comedy packs in a lot of action and sci-fi (though I would not necessarily call it hard science fiction) plus just enough romance for fans of current YA literature. It was a lot of fun to read. You might even like it if you don't normally read teen fiction.

    This book really surprised me. I was looking a quick diversion and it sounded decent, but I was pretty much blown away. "The End of the World As We Know It" is consistently laugh out loud funny, with really rich characterizations of each of the main characters, exciting action, and some really clever scenarios. There's a lot of poignant observations in here, too. Again, not expected. The book is categorized as YA, but as is true with the best YA books, this one is plenty of fun even if puberty is a distant, distant memory to you (I'm not even gonna tell you how old I am). All in all, a great little book. It seems ready for the big screen.

    This book is incredibly entertaining, a joyous read. Even if sci-fi is not typically your favorite genre, do not worry you will still love this! I laughed the entire time I was reading this. "Genre bending' is an apt description, it is different than anything that I have ever read but easy and enjoyable to read. I'm sure this will become an instant hit!

    From the second I opened this book (or, um, clicked on my Nook app) I knew it was something special. Yes, it has a great premise (who wouldn't want to see the Brat Pack face off against little green men?) but what really grabbed me was the voice. Witty, clever, and completely endearing.

    It's hard for many authors to handle multiple POV without making all the characters sound the same, or worse, using shallow, cliche stereotypes in an attempt to make them sound different. Iva-Marie plays off the classic teen archetypes but makes each character funny and smart in distinctive, sometimes surprising ways.

    "The End of the World As We Know It" hits the sweet spot between YA and Sci-Fi and is a great entry into both genres for people like me who typically read Chick Lit or Rom Coms.

    In addition to being a fun, weird adventure (I can't smell coffee anymore without thinking of this book!), TEOTWAWKI is also laugh-out-loud funny. I don't mean like when your friend texts you something kind of funny and you reply "LOL." I mean, I actually laughed out loud.

    At its heart, this is a universal story about people finding their way in the world...something we can all relate to whether or not aliens have actually taken over it.

    This book is full of major whit, adventure, and a total joy to read...And its about an alien invasion!?! Iva-Marie knows how to make an alien invasion fun and make you want to join in on the action!

    Our heros are Leo (the burnout), Teena (the most popular girl in school), Evan (the preachers son), and Sarabeth (loner/ straight a student). After a prank by Teena the four are locked in the wine cellar at the most talked about party of the year. Little did they know that Teena's prank would end up saving their lives and leaving them the only ones to defend their little town from an alien invasion.

    Right from the get go there is this amazing tone to the book. Almost a Breakfast Club vibe, who the most unlikeliest of people come together for a united cause. The characters are their steryotypes and so much more. I love that Iva-Marie gives each character depth and you realize that they all bring something important to the table. Another thing I loved most was the banter between them all. At times they had me right out laughing, which is always a good thing but something I totally did not expect when I thought Alien Invasion. LOL

    Over all this book is light hearted and a major hoot to read! I enjoyed it very much and I can not wait to see what the Ive-marie puts out next.

    I know why this book has gotten so many great reviews, because it is great! This was a fun enjoyable read with sharp dialogue that pops off the page. This isn't hardcore sci-fi, but more a funny, heart-filled story that just happens to involve a variety of gross, weird aliens. I loved the characters and feel like I know them. BTW if aliens ever do invade, the guy I work with who happens to be a lover of "Mean Greenies" is exactly who'd I want to by my side.
