We Are The Ants

We Are The Ants - Shaun David Hutchinson First glance: Great title, lovely cover.

There are a few things Henry Denton knows, and a few things he doesn’t.
Henry knows that his mom is struggling to keep the family together, and coping by chain-smoking cigarettes. He knows that his older brother is a college dropout with a pregnant girlfriend. He knows that he is slowly losing his grandmother to Alzheimer’s. And he knows that his boyfriend committed suicide last year.

Oh Gawd, it's one of those - tragic teenager with tragic live being oh so tragic... been there, done that, nobody cared to give me a fuckin' t-shirt.

What Henry doesn’t know is why the aliens chose to abduct him when he was thirteen, and he doesn’t know why they continue to steal him from his bed and take him aboard their ship.

Huh? Well, maybe not that generic after all...

He doesn’t know why the world is going to end or why the aliens have offered him the opportunity to avert the impending disaster by pressing a big red button. But they have. And they’ve only given him 144 days to make up his mind.

Okayyyy, I think I need to read this book right fuckin' yesterday!
