Title: Science Fiction Titles about Aliens
Post by: barbara-senenman on March 05, 2017, 05:26 PM
Hi!  I'm hoping to get titles of books, preferably middle-grade or YA about aliens trying to take over the Earth.  Thank you.

When I got home today, I asked my resident SF reader and he suggested Animorphs might fit. You also may want to look at the original War of the Worlds, which is read in schools still. A lot of old SF has these themes and is read by teens even though YA wasn't a thing back then. I hope this helps.
