Up and Coming: Armada by Ernest Cline

Librarian M has a review of what is sure to be one of the hottest books for adult with teen appeal this summer:

Armada by Ernest Cline

Some of you may have read and enjoyed Ernest Cline’s previous book, Ready Player One, so I wanted to make sure you know that he has another one coming out soon!

Zack is counting the days until graduation, but he doesn’t really have a plan for what to do after high school. Obviously, he will continue to spend massive amounts of time playing his favorite alien-fighting video game, Armada. Maybe he will also take on more hours at the gaming store where he currently works part-time. Who knows, coming up with a plan for your life is hard, ya know? Coasting along remains Zack’s modus operandi until he is suddenly recruited into a world-saving job that he can’t turn down.

Full of action and sci-fi pop-culture references, Armada is a fun read that is perfect for a lazy summer day!
