John Smith (as he's currently called) is Number Four, which is his place in line of the nine children sent to earth from an other planet. A charm in place protects him as long as One through Three are alive; unfortunately, Number Three has just been killed.

I actually really liked the premise - having to keep hiding from the enemy, trying to blend in but never being able to be a part of the community. I liked John and I adored Henri, and I'm intrigued by Six and Bernie.

I'm surprised at how many reviewers really didn't like this book - hated the writing, thought the plot was bad. I thought it was very good. I really liked the writing. It kept me interested, and everything flowed well. And while I admit that I don't read science fiction that much, I thought the plot was great! Now, maybe in the Sci-Fi world, it's overdone but to me, it was exciting.

I haven't seen the movie yet, but will definitely watch it soon! As for the book, I can't wait for the next installment.
