Synopsis

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.

      I’m not too far into it but starting to struggle with it. Not sure it’s one for me but going to keep reading and see.

  3. I love super heroes and this sounds like an interesting read. :-)

    • fuonlyknew says:

      I remember you like them. I’m going to read more tonight. Hopefully it will hook me in again.

  4. Kathy Martin says:

    My students really enjoy this series. I haven’t started it yet. My YA teaser this week comes from Secrets of the Dragon Tomb by Patrick Samphire which is a fun science fiction title set on Mars. Happy reading!

    I don’t know this book and haven’t heard of the movie. It’s quite intriguing. Here’s my intro and teaser: http://wp.me/p4DMf0-16A

    Sounds good. I have to read the book before I’ll watch the movie.

  7. That’s a great title, and the plot sounds good too.

    • fuonlyknew says:

      I picked up the hard cover copy at a library sale. The cover caught me first. I plan to watch the movie after I’m finished reading it.

  13. Marilyn says:

    I think I saw the movie of this one a long while back. Great pick! Hope you enjoy the rest of the book.

    Thanks for stopping by my TT.

  14. Candid Cover says:

    Your teasers always get me! I have had my eye on this book for a while. Where does he disappear to??? I hope that you enjoyed it! <3
