After finishing The Hunger Games I thought we would have nothing to fill the gap for a while…but then along comes this little gem. I Am Number Four has alien conspiracy, teen angst, road trips and a crazy, devastating battle to conclude the book….but not the series!

The story occasionally veers off into mushy teen romance and some of the battle descriptions bore me a little (but that’s just me…the 13 year old male living with me just loved, loved, loved it). The last half of the book was unputdownable as I raced to find out what happened.
I’m hooked…bring on Number 5.
Nine of us came here. We look like you. We talk like you. We live among you. But we are not you. We can do things you dream of doing. We have powers you dream of having. We are stronger and faster than anything you have ever seen. We are the superheroes you worship in movies and comic books–but we are real.
Our plan was to grow, and train, and become strong, and become one, and fight them. But they found us and started hunting us first. Now all of us are running. Spending our lives in shadows, in places where no one would look, blending in. We have lived among you without you knowing.
But they know.
They caught Number One in Malaysia.
Number Two in England.
And Number Three in Kenya.
They killed them all.
I am Number Four.
I am next.
