I Am Number Four

I have FINALLY finished a book after like, two weeks. So here goes my review! I'm so glad I finally got to finish this book! This book is also a movie now, and it's by Pittacus Lore.
There were nine of them at first. But they were hunted. Hunted by the Mogadorians. They traveled from the planet Lorien and came to Earth after the Mogadorians destroyed everything they had. They can only be killed in order. He is Number Four.
John has gone by many names during his life span. Every time danger is near, he moves somewhere else with a new identity. This time he is John Smith in the town of Paradise, Ohio. He has no parents, he lives with ihs protector, Henri. At first, it's easy to stay hidden. But then things start to change. The jock at the high school makes John use his alien strength on him, and it risks the existence of his kind. Then there's Sarah Hart, the girl he is in love with. But how can he keep such a secret from her? And then of course there's Sam, the alien geek, who comes very close to actually knowing that John is an alien. Once Number Three is killed, John is next. The Mogadorian's are near and he can feel it. But what can he do? He can't leave Paradise and start over again. Read this thrilling Sci-fi book to find out if John survives life while he is constantly being hunted.
I have to admit, I'm not a big fan of science fiction. But this book was really good! Like, crazy good! I thought it was a bit boring in the beginning, but once all the action starts and everything gets risky, you can't set the book down. I was literally hanging onto my seat just waiting to see what would happen next. Even though I don't like books that have boys as their main character, this was a really neat read! I really liked it! John was such a lovable character, he was so real. You immediately knew who he was and what he liked in the book, he wasn't just a character, he was a person. A real person. I liked the connection he had with Sarah, and what he had with his protector, or Cepan, Henri was really touching. The action in this book was unbelievably easy to understand, I wasn't lost. I was never like, "Hey, what's going on?". I understood everything. Overall, this book is AMAZING! You guys HAVE to read it before you see the movie!
