“John Smith” and his guardian, Henri, are constantly on the move, attempting to keep their identities safe. John must also try to fit in where ever they go: no showing off his super powers; no giving away his past. The Mogadorians are hunting “John” and 8 other survivors from the planet Lorien. They are picking them off one-by-one, and have to do it in order. Number 3 just died. John is number 4.
This book was a great read–lots of excitement and suspense, with a little romance sprinkled in for good measure. There were some unexpected turn of events that kept the reading fresh. Kids who loved The Hunger Games would also love this book.
