I Am Number Four , which is already being made into a Steven Spielberg-produced film, looks expensive. The first in a six-book series pseudonymously written by the surprising pair of newcomer Jobie Hughes and memoir-fabulist James Frey, even its proof — a hardcover in a slipcase — is startlingly opulent. It's a bit of a shame, then, that all this money spent in search of the next big teenage crossover smash has gone to a perfectly decent action-adventure that firmly refuses to be anything more. Number Four is year-old John Smith, his most recently chosen name in a life spent moving house every few months and constantly changing his identity. He is one of nine Garde who secretly came to Earth as children after the destruction of their home planet, Lorien, by the evil Mogadorians. Fortunately for everyone, Loriens look human, and after a move to extremely rural Ohio, John starts the process of fitting into a new school yet again. But John is threatened by greater dangers than just bullying.
