I Am Number Four
Number One is one of the nine Garde who were chosen by the Elders to escape Lorien , survive the Mogadorian Invasion , and grow to take their place as one of the next generation of Elders. They start their travels in America, but when One starts to draw attention to them, they quickly flee to Malaysia , where they are ultimately tracked and killed. Hilde is killed first, which causes One to generate a new Legacy which could create seismic waves. However, once they figure out One could be hurt, the Mogs quickly overwhelm and kill her. One's body is taken to Ashwood Estates , where she is wired up to a Mogadorian named Adamus Sutekh , in order to trial a memory transfer device. A ghost version of One is downloaded into Adamus' mind, as well as all of One's memories. One was at first stern and concerned, but quickly turned into Adam's "imaginary" friend.

Most of the book is told in the first person by Number Four, who takes the name John Smith. There, John befriends conspiracy theorist Sam Goode and "adopts" a dog identified by its name tag as "Bernie Kosar".
