Books Into Movies – “Water for Elephants” and “I am Number Four”

For those that loved the book Water for Elephants” one of my customers reminded me that there is a movie coming out soon.  Below is a sneak preview via the official movie trailer.

Also coming out soon is the movie of the young adult book I am Number Four by Pittacus Locke

Here’s a short synopsis of the story from the Penguin Australia website:

“We were nine, three are dead, I am number four.
Nine teenagers and their guardians are hiding on Earth … protected by a charm that means they can only be killed in numeric order, three are already dead. John Smith is Number Four. And his mortal enemies are hunting him down.

The only way to keep off radar is to keep moving, never staying in one place for long. Finally in the firing line, all he can do is adopt the guise of a student and pray his unusual gifts – his legacies – stay hidden long enough for him to settle into this new community.
But others seem to sense his otherness and when small-town life sucks him into its intrigues, it’s only a matter of time before his true nature is revealed. And that means there’s no space for love, friendship or a future if it means protecting not only himself, but the other five …”
