Book of the Day & Teen Book Club

I Am Number Four by Pittacus Lore

There will be a book club to discuss this book on June 10 at 2:00 with the BPL Teen Librarian Meghan Karasin. Interested? Email Meghan at karasin@noblenet.org.

John Smith seems like an ordinary teenager, living a normal life with his guardian in Ohio. But John's an alien from the planet Lorien, and he's on the run. A group of evil aliens are hunting anyone who escaped their planet. Nine Loric children were sent to Earth to live in hiding until they grew up and developed special powers that would help them fight back -- and save us. Three are now dead. John is Number Four, and he knows he's next! Perfect for fans of action-packed sci fi like The 5th Wave or The Maze Runner.
