In the book I Am Number Four by Pittacus Lore, Number Four is the the main character. Number Four is trying to run away from the Mogadorians, the bad guys in the book series of I Am Number Four, The Power of Six, and The Rise of Nine. The reason that the Mogadorians are after Number Four and his friends is because they are the last of their kind and the Mogadorians want to terminate them all.

This book takes place in the future because there are aliens as the bad guys. The setting is in America and takes place mostly at Number Four’s house in Ohio. Number Four is in the 10th grade in high school.

I Am Number Four is very action-packed and suspenseful! I liked it because it kept me reading and it was from my favorite genre – Science Fiction. My favorite part of the book is when Number Four has to drive somewhere. Number Four has never driven before so it is interesting how the author describes his first drive in a car. I would recommend this book for both boys and girls who like fiction.
