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.

Im sorry your going through this horribles time with your parents. Im sorry for saying this but your dad is insensitive and hes not showing you love even if he does love you. I dunno what to say cos I would feel the way you does too :/ When it comes to your mum it must of been upsetting to hear her tell her friends that your the lazy and then saying to you that shes gonna leave you and your brother cos you doesnt appreciate what she does for you.  Im thinking she could do with some more help from you with the chores if you doesnt help already.  Is there any way you could say you want to have the chat with her and then tell her how your feeling and say you dont want to be called the lazy brat and what is it that your not doing that she wants you to. I really hopes it works out and good luck :angel :love

Most murders are done by gangs or robberies or things of that nature. A murderer should be put through a refining jail system that provides resources needed to have them become a more productive member of society. And, even if it is rooted in mental illness to an extreme, why should they be killed themselves for doing something that was not their fault? If they can be rehabilitated or treated for their mental illness, then they should have those resources provided to them. There is no justification for the death of another human being....for the death of another human being.
