Guys.  This book.  OMG this book.

See the beautiful cover?  Despite how beautiful this cover is, it does not do this book justice.  I don't think any cover really truly could.


A few weeks ago I was a part of the blog tour for We Are The Ants through Irish Banana Blot Tours.  I made a pocket letter themed off this wonderful, amazing, brilliant book.  If you missed it you can find that post HERE.

If you haven't figure it out yet, I absolutely loved this book.  I have been raving about it since I read it.  I have been telling everyone that I know that they need to read it.  Now I am here telling you.

This book.  It is hard to put words to it.  It is beautiful.  It is heart wrenching.  It is mind blowing.

So what is this book about?  It is about Henry.  Henry gets abducted by aliens.  The aliens have told him he has until January 29, 2016 to choose if he wants to push the button.  If he pushes the button, he will save the world.  If he doesn't, the world will come to an end.

At a point before the story begins, Henry's boyfriend committed suicide.  He left no note, nothing.  Now Henry is in a secret relationship with his arch nemesis.  People ridicule him.  Call him Space Boy and his home life is far from perfect.

So much happens in this book.  There are certain parts of it I would love to tell you about, but can't.   Once you do read the book though, please feel free to contact me so we can discuss the brilliance of We Are The Ants.

There isn't anything I didn't like about this book.  The pacing was fantastic.  I loved the characters.  I felt very connected to Henry.

We Are The Ants contains a story that is going to stick with you for a long time after you finish.  Please read it.  And please come find me when you are done so we can talk about it.
