There were words said by each of them. My grandfather stood just over her shoulder. He knows that he is next. I know that I am next. We can do things you dream of doing. It has huge gaping holes in its plot, and it made me role my eyes a lot. Nine aliens who might be sitting next to you now.
We are the superheroes you worship in movies and comic books—but we are real. He locks the door, then leaves the keys in the mail slot beside it. The man takes a deep breath as he inches his hand to the latch. It was warm, a soft wind blew in from off the water. A mural of a pirate with a knife between his teeth covers the outside wall beside the front door.
Tired of new houses, new schools. We left when we were young, almost too young to remember. The waters pass below us. With that scowl it might. The school is three miles away from our house. We drive for four miles before turning left onto a gravel road, then pass open cut fields that are probably full of corn in the summer, then through a dense forest for about a mile. I pour the gas over the small pile.
They caught Number One in Malaysia. Off I go to rule the school, I say. I light a match and drop it, and the pile ignites. Time is running out, and the only thing they know for certain is that they have to get to Five before it's too late. After wings sprout from Brielle's back at her awakening ceremony, she's sure she's an angel-blessed celestial. He walks to our truck and comes back with passports, birth certificates, social security cards, checkbooks, credit cards and bank cards, and drops them on the ground.

The house is one story. There is an underlying push for environmental concerns in the book. The third of the Lorien symbols, the third warning.
It was a good alibi in the beginning, so he named himself Henri, and he has stuck with it ever since, just changing his last name to match mine. On you at all times. Nine aliens who look like ordinary teenagers living ordinary lives, but who have extraordinary, paranormal skills. Boulders that would break him apart if he fell on them. However, as human teenagers start to develop Loric powers, they join John and the rest of The Garde to ensure that the Morgadorians don't have the final say in what happens to their planet.
A moment later, something hits the back of my elbow. It was warm, a soft wind blew in from off the water. The longest it has taken me to beat any of them is about a day. We watch the house grow smaller in the side mirrors until Henri pulls onto the main road and the house disappears. Three wooden stairs lead to a small porch covered with rickety chairs.
As John, or Number Four, begins to develop his superpowers and realizes the importance of them, he has a great mentor in Henri and friends he learns to trust. He just basically made the other characters sound like they were mentally deficient. But they found us and started hunting us first. Love interest Sarah seems to lose her depth as the story goes forward -- maybe it's the too-quick acceptance of who John really is that does it. Before we get on the highway, Henri pulls over to gas up the truck. I dump the bag of celery out at their feet and crouch down and pet each of them in turn.
He knew without me saying a word, though he did lift my soaking pants to see the scars. One of them raises his head and looks at me. Whenever she tries again, he moves farther away. This is about the survival of our race, which was almost entirely obliterated, and about keeping you alive. On the high school front there's some bullying, a fistfight, some drinking, and a house fire started by teen drinkers. I know that I am next.
