I Am Number Four by Pittacus LoreCourtesy of HarperTeen

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.
