This week I'm waiting on...
I Am Number Four by Pittacus Lore
Summary from Amazon.co.uk: In the beginning we were nine. We left when we were very young, almost too young to remember. Almost. And now . . . Three are gone. We are here to keep our race alive, which was almost entirely obliterated. We’re just trying to survive. Six are left. But we are hunted, and the hunters won’t stop until they’ve killed us all. They caught Number One in Malaysia. Number Two in England. And Number Three in Kenya. I am Number Four. I know that I am next.
I've been through a bit of a YA sci-fi drought recently, so this one has me doing my happy dance. Apparently, it's about aliens on the run from some evil force who wants to kill them.
Aliens! How awesome. Aliens are my favourite.
Also, if the online bookstores have it right, it appears there might be two UK covers for this one. Which is cool because... well, it just is. I'm not sure whether it's a boy cover / girl cover thing or a YA cover / grown-up cover thing, but in this kind of situation I tend to find I want them both.
Current ETA for I Am Number Four is August 26th 2010 in the UK and August 17th 2010 for US types. I Am Crazy Excited.
