Publisher: HarperCollins
Series: Lorien Legacies, Book One

"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.

I Am Number Four is the thrilling launch of a series about an exceptional group of teens as they struggle to outrun their past, discover their future—and live a normal life on Earth.

My Thoughts:
To be honest I am not one for aliens books. The only ever alien book I've read is The Host by Stephenie Meyer. So I wasn't sure if I would like I Am Number Four by Pittacus Lore. I have heard mixed reviews on this novel. I had those opinions in my head before I read it.   To my amazement I fell in love with  the story and with John, Number Four. I loved how even though he was an alien and from a different planet he still went through the human emotions. I really enjoyed the flash backs to the planet. 

I am looking forward to The Power Of Six, which is set to come out next month. Hehe!! 

5/5 stars, Happy Reading, Ashley
