Aliens walk among us, and now they’re writing young adult fiction. Shelf Life has the exclusive trailer for the highly anticipated upcoming YA novel I Am Number Four, the first in a series of books about a teenage alien (one of nine on Earth) on the run for his life from malicious forces. I Am Number Four was written by Pittacus Lore, an Elder alien from the planet Lorien who managed to secure a six-book deal with HarperCollins. (It should be noted that Lore is thought to be the extraterrestrial nom de plume of authors James Frey and Jobie Hughes.) Amazingly, a movie adaptation is already in the works, produced by none other than Michael Bay and Steven Spielberg. Take a gander at the “Truth is out there” book trailer below, filled with mysterious lights and crop circles, and let us know what you think.

So, what say you? Excited for I Am Number Four?
