UGGGGGGGGH. I don't know why I do this to myself. I Am Number Four was painful and yet here I am. What's worse is that this book is split between two characters and the new character/her section was actually not that bad. I think it's when the author writes for Four that they get hung up on weird corny/cliche/awful dialogue and thought processes. I can't explain it. I love the word "dude" but it is just too much here! I found myself skimming a lot and then I ended up completely missing that a house exploded and had to back track my reading. Whoops. I still want to find out what happens though and meet the other numbers so I will be putting myself through this again.
