Overview

Survival Of The Fittest by Michael Taylor

One night, seven teenagers wake completely alone and in the dark. Their parents are gone, and it seems everyone on earth has disappeared as well. Worse, the electricity is off. Surrounded by darkness, their differences no longer matter; they are the sole survivors of an alien attack and the last hope for humanity. But in the black of night, can they outrun the hulking creatures with the glowing red eyes?

Priya is the exotic girl who says what she thinks. Will was a star athlete before the attack. They find Trevor and Aiyana, the twins; Alex and Ricardo, the tough guys; and finally, Lindsey, the innocent. Together, the seven of them are the last humans on earth-but are they really humans at all? They have no idea that the government has known of the incoming alien attack for decades; to prepare they created special children with very special abilities.

The chosen seven are part alien and part human, and they exist to fight off the otherworldly forces, threatening to conquer the planet. But with such differing personalities, will the seven be able to put their pride be-hind and work together? They must move beyond the grief of lost friends and family and find the strength to go on; if they don't, the world will die, taken over by monstrous creatures that can smell your fear.

If I hand more hands they'd all have their thumbs up! I LOVE this book. Personally, Trevor Greene is my favorite character. He's not afriad of anything. He is brave and is willing to protect everyone he knows and loves. This book has Sci-fy, action, and any teen can relate to each character. It's a book everyone in the family will love!

Hi Mr. Taylor!!! I loved this book and cant wait to read the next. I only rate this book 4 stars because it spent a little to much time in the idcc not in the program and in some parts it was a bit confusing as to what was going on. (JS)

“Survival of the Fittest: The Last Hope for the Human Race” by Michael Taylor is a YA book about seven teenagers who suddenly find out that they have been genetically modified so that they can fight aliens that are intent on claiming the earth for their own. The book opens up with the seven teenagers who suddenly find themselves alone in a world where all other humans seem to have vanished. As they seek each other out, they all come face to face with strange creatures that seem intent on killing them. Will these seven teenagers figure out the puzzle and do what is needed to survive? This story was a fun read. Each of the teenagers had their own distinct personality and the interactions between them were very plausible. The author transports the reader 50 years earlier to explain why the world governments fear an invasion and why the only possible solution to the invasion is to genetically modify children so that they will be able to fight for the human race. This book is for teenager/adult audiences. Teenagers will relate to the characters and adults will relate to the desire to protect our children at any cost. There was never a dull moment and the author ends the book with a cryptic warning that will, hopefully, be explored in a sequel. **This book was received for free through Goodreads First Reads. That in no way influenced my review.**
