Eleven years ago, an evil race of aliens called Mogadorians came to the beautiful, peaceful planet of Lorien with blood and greed on their minds. They destroyed every inhabitant to gain access to the planet’s natural resources. But some people escaped. Nine children called Garde and nine guardians called Cepan came to Earth, hoping to develop their special powers called Legacies and stay out of harm’s way. But the Mogadorians are after them. They want to kill the Garde before their Legacies develop. But they must kill them in order. Three are dead. Now they’re after Number Four.


New Name, New Place

His newest alias is John Smith as he and his Cepan, Henri, move to Paradise, Ohio, a small town they plan to call home until their lives are once again under threat. Constantly moving has made it impossible for John to make friends. Until now. At the local high school, he meets Sam, a nerdy boy who is extremely into conspiracy theories, particularly aliens; and Sarah, the most beautiful girl he has ever seen. He and Sarah form an undeniable connection, and both realize they’re falling in love.


No More Running

Deep down he knows that eventually the Mogadorians will draw near, and he and Henri will have to pack up and skip town. But his new relationships make the thought of leaving impossible. And now that his Legacies are starting to develop, it’s becoming harder to keep his true identity a secret.


The Bottom Line

For anyone who liked Stephenie Meyer’s The Host, or any other sci-fi novel, you must read this book. It is the first book in the Lorien Legacies. And believe me, once you read this, you’ll be begging for the second. Best of all, I Am Number Four is hitting the big screen on February 18th. The film stars Alex Pettyfer (from Stormbreaker), Diana Agron (from Glee) and Timothy Olyphant.

all it took was one conversation, one look, one smile, one laugh and I was gone. Gone into oblivion. Disappeared  into some alternate universe for just me and him. His eyes were captivating and his words were infectious. As I fell harder the image of myself I once saw was slowly fading to make room for his.. He became everything I wanted. He became my life in more ways than one. I opened up to him. The was way he made it so easy was almost like casting a spell on me. I no longer had control over my own body. It was all him. But soon our love became my love for him..our hearts became further and further apart because little ddid I know our love was non existaant and it was  always just my love. my love that he used to his advantage to get to my heart.. and once he got there he stole it. he stole my heart tore it apart and left me to clean up the mess. He was a criminal.

So I guess I'll take w shot at this,   I am Mount Everest, Steep, Up and Downs. The world around,  walking all over me,  I am of whispers. A misunderstood mountain, They pray for safety that I won’t kill them That cannot help them.  I am not evil,  I am not a killer, I don’t hurt others for joy. I act strong and hid in the fog, But I can’t always hide. I break, I fall Avalanches occur from my surface.   I don’t mean to kill I don’t mean to break, I’m sorry if you become my victim I don’t mean it I am veiled in the clouds and fog No one knowing how I feel. You may ask, But I never tell I may regret not talking, but you don’t get it. I am misunderstood, I am shown to be strong, I am called mighty, I am high, To most I cannot fall. But no one gets it, I break, I fall, I hurt Just as those who climb me, I feel pain, I suffer   I am a mountain but I do cry Those storms that some die in, They blamed them for testing me I do not mean it I cannot help if I feel pain I am me, I am like you I have hills to climb, Life’s a climb, I am a climb There are steeps to overcome I may not make it, I may fall, I will fall Attempt to get up, May fail   I am not always the strong mountain, The one others come for help I need help to, You may cry to me I cry away from others, hidden I show no emotion, I store it But it explodes, I shatter, I show the true colors of my feelings I fall and it may seem like most ignore There are those who stop and help I am Mount Everest High and Steep, I to have to climb, The Mountain of Life

Welcome to Kidzworld, how are you? Here are some tips on how to survi- I mean, have a good time. 1, no swearing or saying copyrighted company names. they will just get replaced with hashtags (i.e ####) 2, if you're on chat, no cyberbullying (this one isn't from personal experience, but still!)! 3, if people start to get annoying on chat, just block 'em.
