John Smith is not your average teenager.
He regularly moves from town to town. He changes his name and identity. He does not put down roots. He cannot tell anyone who or what he really is. If he stops moving, those who hunt him will find and kill him.
But you can't run forever.
So when he stops in Paradise, Ohio, John decides to try and settle down. To fit in. And for the first time he makes some real friends. People he cares about - and who care about him. Never in John's short life has there been space for friendship, or even love.
But it's just a matter of time before John's secret is revealed.
He was once one of nine. Three of them have been killed.
John is Number Four. He knows that he is next . . .
Perfect for fans of The Hunger Games - I Am Number Four is the first book in Pittacus Lore's Lorien Legacies series, now a major Disney film.
In this action-packed but formulaic novel, first in the Lorien Legacies series, John Smith appears to be a normal American teenager, living in Ohio with his father, attending high school, and falling for a local girl. But he's really something much cooler: an alien from the planet Lorien, and one of the last survivors of a race that was nearly wiped out by its enemies. And now the evil Mogadorians have traveled to Earth looking for survivors, with an eye toward wiping out this planet as well. John is destined to fight them, but will his superpowers manifest before it's too late? Lore (a Loric elder in the book, and a pseudonym for writer James Frey and a coauthor) provides a fast-moving plot and some genuinely creepy bad guys, though the basic premise is clich d and the science won't pass muster with diehard SF fans. However, a Michael Bay produced movie is planned for 2011, and for those looking for an undemanding, popcorn-ready read, this "guy okay, alien gets the girl and saves the world" adventure should do the trick. Ages 14 up.
Great book, Terrible E-Book
Just got this book recommended to me so I decided to read it. I bought this version only to my dismay found that chapter 22 is completely missing, as well as the end of chapter 21 and who knows how many others. I am completely disappointed in this e-book. By all means read the book, but don't waste your money on this version.
Very similar to the umbrella academy but a bit different
This is one one of my favourite series, amazing plot and development of characters across the whole series
