Armada by Ernest Cline
Zack Lightman is daydreaming through another dull math class when the high-tech dropship lands in his school's courtyard-and when the men in the dark suits and sunglasses leap out of the ship and start calling his name, he's sure he's still dreaming.
But the dream is all too real; the people of Earth need him. As Zack soon discovers, the videogame he's been playing obsessively for years isn't just a game; it's part of a massive, top-secret government training program, designed to teach gamers the skills they'll need to defend Earth from a possible alien invasion. And now…that invasion is coming.
As he and his companions prepare to enter their ships and do battle, Zack learns that the father he thought was dead is actually a key player in this secret war. And together with his father, he'll uncover the truth about the alien threat, race to prevent a genocide, and discover a mysterious third player in the interplanetary chess game he's been thrown into.
GAH! When I found out that Ernest Cline was coming out with a new book, I knew I needed to get it asap! It sucks though because it comes out July 2014. I know it doesn't come out for a really long time, but I wanted to get the word out. Ready Player One is one of my favorite books I read this year, as well as one of my favorite books of all time, it was amazing. So even though this book comes out in 11 months, I already know it is going to be amazing, and I am going to try my hardest to get an ARC of it.
