I Am Number Four by Pittacus Lore

John Smith is not your average teenager. He regularly moves from small town to small town. He changes his name and identity. He does not put down roots. He cannot tell anyone who or what he really is. If he stops moving those who hunt him will find and kill him. But you can’t run forever.

So when he stops in Paradise, Ohio, John decides to try and settle down. To fit in. And for the first time he makes some real friends. People he cares about – and who care about him. Never in John’s short life has there been space for friendship, or even love.But it’s just a matter of time before John’s secret is revealed.

He was once one of nine. Three of them have been killed.

John is Number Four. He knows that he is next . . .

You might be really surprised to see this written, but I think this book would make a better movie. Yes, I know it already is a movie. No, I haven't seen it yet, but I want too. On amazon it's getting so many mixed reviews. I personally enjoyed it. Is it something new...not really it follows along the lines of all teenage fiction these days. Everlasting love and impending doom, with a lecture on how we need to protect our planet. Well, sorta but it's all about how one race destroyed a planet for it's resources and basically earth is next....which is why I think big screen more on this then book.
However I found it really entertaining and unlike other series.... (yes another series!! 6 in total!!) I do want to know what happens I'll most likely be reading all 6! And if I get to the movies I'll be back to post on it!! I'm sorry if that turned out to be mostly ramblings!!
