Goodreads Synopsis:
In the beginning they were a group of nine. Nine aliens who left their home planet of Lorien when it fell under attack by the evil Mogadorian. Nine aliens who scattered on Earth. Nine aliens who look like ordinary teenagers living ordinary lives, but who have extraordinary, paranormal skills. Nine aliens who might be sitting next to you now. The Nine had to separate and go into hiding.

The Mogadorian caught Number One in Malaysia, Number Two in England, and Number Three in Kenya. All of them were killed. John Smith, of Paradise, Ohio, is Number Four. He knows that he is next.

I AM NUMBER FOUR is the thrilling launch of a series about an exceptional group of teens as they struggle to outrun their past, discover their future—and live a normal life on Earth.
My Review:
AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! SUCH A GOOD BOOK! I honestly loved it despite seeing so many negative reviews. Umm hello this book is great! If this book wasn't good then it would never have been turned into a movie! Duh!
        Anyways, the plot was very interesting. There are nine aliens with legacies or powers that have been shipped to earth because their planet is in utter chaos. Each teenager has a guardian who will teach them how to control their powers and ultimately defect the Mongaorian Race. But they caught Number One in Malaysia, Number Two in England, and Number Three in Kenya. Now Number Four must try to stay alive and train to fight. John Smith is number four and he must find the rest of the surviving members of his grade. But his Guardian is killed and now John is alone and trying to survive. But as the Mongaorians catch up with Number Four and try to kill him, a surprise visit from one of the remaining teenagers comes to his rescue. Now John and this Number Six fight for their lives to find the rest of their team to train and survive. Along the way they must depend on humans to help them even though there might be a chance that the humans are reconciling with the enemy.
            This book kept me on edge the entire time. There was never a dull moment. I kept getting hit with plot twists right and left which made this book a fun read. If you like aliens with superhuman powers then you will definitely love this book. And as I mentioned earlier there is a movie based off of this book. But I gotta say it was pretty good with the character descriptions and the creation of the Mongaorians was creepy as hell, but very realistic! 
Here's Some Interesting News: Check out the trailer for this movie!
