I Am Number Four #01: I Am Number Fourby Pittacus Lore
Synopses & Reviews
A riveting, fast-paced adventure, Scan is a clever alien thriller with muscle and heart.
Tate and his father dont exactly get along. As Tate sees it, his father has unreasonably high expectations for Tate to be the best—at everything. Tate finally learns what hes being prepared for when he steals one of his dads odd tech inventions and mercenaries ambush the school, killing his father in the process and sending Tate on the run from aliens who look just like humans.
Even with all he knows like how to defend himself with useful tools made out of bubblegum, Tate fears hes still inadequate. With the help of his girlfriend and estranged mother, all Tate can really do is keep moving and ensure his fathers invention stays out of the hands of his pursuers and that his father didnt die in vain.
Car chases, explosions and action galore—awesome.”—Kirkus Reviews
A high-octane thriller.”—Publishers Weekly
The stunning young adult debut from international bestseller Harlan Coben is now in paperback!
Mickey Bolitar's year can't get much worse. After witnessing his father's death and sending his mom to rehab, he's forced to live with his estranged uncle Myron and switch high schools. Fortunately, he's met a great girl, Ashley, and it seems like things might finally be improving. But then Ashley vanishes. Mickey follows Ashley's trail into a seedy underworld that reveals that Ashley isn't who she claimed to be. And neither was Mickey's father. Soon Mickey learns about a conspiracy so shocking that it leaves him questioning everything about the life he thought he knew.
First introduced to readers in Harlan Coben's novel Live Wire Mickey Bolitar is as quick-witted and clever as his uncle Myron, and eager to go to any length to save the people he cares about. Follow Mickey Bolitar on his next adventure in Seconds Away, coming out in Fall 2012!
