Summary: In rural Ohio, friendships and a beautiful girl prove distracting to a fifteen-year-old who has hidden on Earth for ten years waiting to develop the Legacies, or powers, he will need to rejoin the other six surviving Garde members and fight the Mogadorians who destroyed their planet, Lorien.

I Am Number Four is the 1st of 7 books in the Lorien Legacies. It starts the journey of John Smith (Number 4) and his Cêpan, Henri Smith. He travels to Ohio and meets his first two friends: Sam Goode and Sarah Hart. They try to live a normal life, but something big goes down at Paradise High School and they are forced to come out of hiding. This book was such a thriller and definitely my favourite book of the entire series, definitely a hooking and enjoyable book for Year 8s onwards.
