The Host. This is Meyer's debut science fiction novel for adults that would also probably be a great pick for older teens who are interested in science fiction, but maybe not 100% sold on the genre. Host takes an interesting spin on sci-fi--it's definitely science-fiction-ish, but the plot is interwoven with an unusual love story and subsequent thought-provoking twists centering around big topics like...
- the essence of family
- seeing (and being grateful for) the inherent beauty of our world
- being present in each moment of our lives
