QUOTE #3
" 'Hope?' he says, 'There is always hope, John. New developments have yet to present themselves. Not all the information is in. No. Don't give up hope just yet. It's the last thing to go.

John is the fourth of nine garde members who are the protectors of the Lorien race. While John is developing his legacies, Sarah becomes his girlfriend and Sam becomes his best friend. These are the only two people who know what John really is. At the same time John gets bullied by Mark James.
Later, the Mogadorians find John and they battle at their school. Mark and Sarah hide inside the school while John, Henri, Sam and Six fight the battle. Henri dies in the battle. At the end of the book Six, Sam, John, and Bernie Kosar leave town to avoid more Mogadorians.

REVIEW 1
I give this book a 4 out of 5 stars. It had a good plot and descriptive language, The climax was really exciting and suspenseful. The only thing I didn't like was that the climax was at the very end of the book. There were also some slow parts but other than that it was a really good book. I would recommend this book to anyone up for a good read!
REVIEW 2
I would give this book a 4 out of 5 stars! I Am Number Four was a well written book, and used many writing techniques. All the characters were unique and the book had a strong theme, that taught me valuable lessons. This book kept me on my toes and I would recommend many people to read this book. The beginning of the book was slow with no action but later on it gets better. This book is one of the best science fiction book I have ever read!
1. The book Divergent is based on a made up, futuristic society.
2. The book Divergent has characters that are all humans.
3. The book Divergent takes place in the future.
4. In Divergent, the people are divided into
5 groups based on their personality.
1. I Am Number Four is
based on a present
day society.
2. I Am Number Four
has alien characters
that are made up.
3. I Am Number Four
takes place in the present
4. In I Am Number Four,
the people are not divided.
They all are part of one group.
SUGGESTION 1
I think the book could be improved by giving Sarah a more significant role in Four's life. She was mentioned a lot, but she didn't have a important role in the book. Another suggestion that would make the book better would be to include more action. Almost all the action is at the very end of the book. I think it should be more evenly distributed, so the middle of the book isn't boring.
SUGGESTION 2
I think the book
I Am Number Four
can be improved by not having the guardian of Four, Henri dying. Henri was an important character in the book, and if he was still alive this would have helped Four. Another suggestion for the book is I wish that they would have given us more information about the planet that Four came from (Lorien). This would help us have a better understanding of the book, and the past. Also the book could have been better if they told about Four's father and the impact he had on Lorien.
