I Am Number Four
Publisher: Penguin Books
'In the beginning we were a group of nine. Three are gone, dead.....I am Number Four. I know that I am next.' The Nine are sole survivors from the planet Lorien who fled to earth when hostile Mogadarians invaded. They try to live unnoticed, constantly moving, adopting new identities.
When Four and his guardian arrive in Paradise, Ohio, Four yearns to stay, but the Mogadarians are closing in. Then he falls in love and the struggle to reconcile his Lorien destiny with small-town life reaches breaking point.
An intriguingly persuasive concept, relentless pace and well-drawn characters make this sci-fi thriller utterly gripping, and while the tension never lets up, Four's emotional and psychological dilemmas are also explored. Addictively believable!
