John Smith is experiencing some typical teenage problems such as moving to a new town, struggling with bullies, and falling for a girl. However John, aka Number Four, also has to deal with protecting his secret alien identity, controlling his developing powers and hiding from another alien race intent on destroying the last nine of his kind. This is such a fun read, especially the scenes where John finally starts to get a hold of his powers. The book goes into much more detail about his home world and his people than the movie could. The two sequels are equally amazing. --John G.
