Description:

Nine of us came here. We look like you. We talk like you. We live among you. But we are not you. We can do things you dream of doing. We have powers you dream of having. We are stronger and faster than anything you have ever seen. We are the superheroes you worship in movies and comic books--but we are real.
Our plan was to grow, and train, and become strong, and become one, and fight them. But they found us and started hunting us first. Now all of us are running. Spending our lives in shadows, in places where no one would look, blending in. We have lived among you without you knowing.
But they know.
They caught Number One in Malaysia.
Number Two in England.
And Number Three in Kenya.
They killed them all.
I am Number Four.
I am next.
My Rating:
Review: I Am Four The moment that you thought you had posted a review but forgot to type it up and post it.  Ooopsey...
Enter an alien teenager, John Smith a.k.a. Four, who is the new kid in town.  He quickly develops a crush on Sarah and manages and enemy of her ex, Mark.  And... he gets a nerdy sidekick, Sam.  They all enjoy a traditional angsty teenage life for most of the book.  And while all that angst is going on Johnson is developing powers for the first time and trying to keep them a secret.  He's also being hunted by other aliens who want to hunt his species down in numerical order.  They've already found and killed three.
On the story...
I really enjoyed this one.  I loved that the main character is a teenage boy and there is lots of action and new developments without it feeling forced or filler.  While I did enjoy the second half of the book more than the first half, it was still good.
On the narrator...
I enjoyed the narration of the audiobook.  However, the voice given to Sam annoyed the heck out of me. I ended up picturing him as a short pimply kid that looked like a lanky sixth grader.  All the other voices were fine and all the voices were distinct.
