Waiting on Wednesday (11)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, 
hosted by Breaking the Spine,
that spotlights upcoming releases
we are eagerly anticipating.

This week I’m "waiting on” 

by Pittacus Lore
Releases August 2010

I’m not sure if this is the actual synopsis. 
I found it on the I Am Number Four Fans website.

Nine of us came here. We look like you. We talk like you. We live among you. But we are not you. Not even close. We can do things you dream of doing. We have powers you dream of having. We are stronger and faster than anything you have ever seen. We are the superheroes you worship in movies and comic books— but we are real.
Our plan was to grow, and train, and become strong, and become one, and fight them. But they found us and started hunting us first. Now all of us are running, all of us are hiding. Spending our lives in shadows, in places where no one would look, blending in. We have lived among you without you knowing.
But they know.
They caught Number One in Malaysia.
Number Two in England.
And Number Three in Kenya.
They killed them all.
I am Number Four.
I am next.
