  • Exposition
  • Conflict
  • Rising Action
  • In Rick Yancey's "The 5th Wave", right in the beginning you see your main character Cassie (Cassiopeia) searching around in an abandoned grocery store to see if there was anything she could find. She moves to the back, and sees a wounded soldier laying on the floor holding something that seems to be a gun. It wasn't. Cassie proceeds to kill the man holding a cross in his hand.
  • Climax
  • Cassie and her family move towards a camp that is supposedly safer than anywhere else. Cassies little brother is put on a bus and brought to another camp, leaving Cassie alone by herself. It was now her job to find her missing brother.
  • Falling Action
  • Ben Parish?
  • Cassie?
  • Cassie, has to walk over 50 miles to save her brother. Sammy was brought to another camp, where the kids will be put to work to help against the silencers. So it was her job to find the base. On the way there, she finds a highway and is shot by what she thinks is a silencer. She crawls underneath a car to hide and passes out. Her eyes open, and she is laying in a stranger named "Evan" bed.
  • Resolution
  • Cassie!
  • Eventually, Ben parish graduates from the boot camp him and his squad were in. Ben was sent into battle, and one of his squad members (Ringer) finds out that the people back at the camp aren't who they were pretending to be. The leaders were training mindless children into killing humans, and not others.
  • Cassie makes it back to base, as she is taken there by a bus on the high way. She runs into Ben Parish (her crush from high school). Ben was on his way to find Sammy, so Cassie proceeds behind so she can find her little brother.
  • Cassiopeia finally finds Sam in a crowd of people with Ben's help. She brings his bear back, which was the reason for the split between the two. Cassie makes it out with Ben's squad, including her little brother Sammy.
