Liked it even though I'm not from the target age group
That was better than I was expecting especially since I'm not in the target age group. It has a 'Twilight'-ish feel to it with typical teenage angst, high-school issues and some light romance, but on the other side its also a pretty cool sci-fi flick with great special effects and some interesting/unique bad guys.
It follows "John Smith" who is from another planet, (literally). He's masquerading as a typical teen and with the help of his (fairly useless) guardian has been on the run his entire life, trying to stay one step ahead of the intergalactic bounty hunters sent to kill his kind. They are being taken out in numerical order, and John is Number Four.
The final battle scene is kinda epic and the chick playing #6 really kicks ass. I loved the dog/lizard creature and the ending is also very good while being left open for sequels -of course. I remember this book being super popular. 12/29/13
