I am Number Four

The Legacies - Pittacus Lore

I am Number Four, is another middle-grade book about young adults with emerging superpowers.  It was written at about the same time as The Lightning Thief and just isn't as strong.  My SF-loving 6th grader liked I am Number Four, and is eager for the next in series, but I was generally nonplussed and almost didn't finish. Perhaps I have just read too many books in this genre and need to take a break.
