People reaaaalllly loved this book, but I thought it was just, eh. I was sadly surprised it didn't deliver.
Not sure what I was expecting, but it was not THAT awesome. The plot moved along okay, and I'm always up for fun Sci-Fi adventures, but I felt unmoved in general. Oh well. ( )

This was one of the first male-lead YA stories I had read in awhile and I really enjoyed it. I like the idea of the story...and I love the back story of the character's previous lives. I really loved the action sequences in the book as well, sometimes those are hard to pull off in words. I look forward to following this series. ( )

I have always been a fan of novels involving outsiders. Whatever the reason they are that way doesn't generally matter to me. I also tend to like fantasy/sci-fi whatever. This books kinda mixes them.

Teenage alien boy on the run from the other aliens who destroyed his home planet and everyone he knew and loved.

Its a pretty good read. Quick for its 440 pages. I liked the main character and the premise. The romance was a little cheesy but it was bearable and to be expected in a young adult book. It seems to be set up for sequels, I'll probably check them out. ( )

Very readable but definitely not spectacular. ( )

Quotations
I pick up a birth certificate that he has already finished.  The name written is James Hughes.  The date of birth would make me one year older.  I'd be sixteen and able to drive.  Then I bend over and look at the one he is in the process of creating. The name listed is Jobie Frey, age eighteen, a legal adult.

Book 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.
