I Am Number Four

Title: I Am Number Four
Author: Pittacus Lore
Series: Lorien Legacies
Genre: Fiction
Audience: Young Adult
Format: Book - library

From Goodreads: In the beginning they were a group of nine. Nine aliens who left their home planet of Lorien when it fell under attack by the evil Mogadorian. Nine aliens who scattered on Earth. Nine aliens who look like ordinary teenagers living ordinary lives, but who have extraordinary, paranormal skills. Nine aliens who might be sitting next to you now.
The Nine had to separate and go into hiding. The Mogadorian caught Number One in Malaysia, Number Two in England, and Number Three in Kenya. All of them were killed. John Smith, of Paradise, Ohio, is Number Four. He knows that he is next.

What I thought: I saw the movie of this before I read the book. The movie was ok, the book, as usual, was better. I actually don't have a lot to say about this. It wasn't brilliant, it wasn't awful - it was a nice light read. I have the second book, The Power of Six to read and I will. It will be interesting to see how it develops.

Recommended for: not sure. Those who enjoy the current trends in YA fiction.
