Alright, it was the number 1 movie this weekend, but have you read the book?
Alright, you've seen the movie and read the book, what's next? You can try some of these books while waiting for book #2 (coming out in August). I focused on the action of I am Number Four and not the alien aspect, so if you want the alien aspect, write a comment and I'll post another list!
The Awakening by Michael Carroll
Superheroes (and villains) disappeared ten years ago, but two teen boys’ developing powers are gaining attention
from all sides.
Thieves like Us by Stephen Cole
Teen geniuses/delinquents are handpicked for this Indiana Jones-esque adventure to decipher clues to the secret of everlasting life.
The Maze Runner by James Dashner
Thomas wakes up in a stone maze with no memory of how he got there.
Incarceron by Catherine Fisher
The daughter of the warden helps Finn, a prisoner, escape from Incarceron, a prison with a mind of its own. (and it's going to be a movie too starring Taylor Lautner and Emma Watson!)
Sure Fire by Jack Higgins with Justin Richards
What would you do if you found out your father was a spy?
Stormbreaker by Anthony Horowitz
Think of a Young James Bond action series—and the movie starred Alex Pettyfer (with his British accent).
Maximum Ride: the Angel Experiment by James Patterson
Genetic experimented orphans ban together to be a family and to protect each other against the “School.”
