WISH LIST: I Am Number Four by Pittacus Lore

I Am Number Four by Pittacus Lore

Description (Google Books):  

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.

Special Notes:  I have been eyeing this book for a while now, but just recently saw the preview for the upcoming movie.  Yep, gotta read this before the movie is released because it looks good!!  Take a look for yourself . . . 


  1. Sounds very like Heroes. I loved the original series of Heroes (I even own it on DVD) but wasn't so fond of the rest of the series.

    Be interesting to see if the book is better than the movie in the case of this one.

  2. I really want this book, too. I'd love to read it and then give it to my grandsons. Part of the movie was filmed where they go to high school.

  3. Me too! Me too! The trailer looks awesome.

  4. Tracy . . . I love Heroes! Hopefully, I will like this one just as much!

    Carol M . . . That is very cool! What a great idea!!

    Suey . . . I know!! Isn't it?!? :)
