Jen's and Luke's Life

Reader reviewed by Jesi Labra

Its about a girl name Jen and a boy name Luke. They were the shadow children. They couldnt get out of the house because there was a population law. And if they saw them they would get killed! And when Luke escaped from his house he went to the Sports familys house and thats when he meets Jen.





The reason I liked the book is because it was interesting because when Luke and Jen were getting on the computer to look up something. Then the part of when Jen went to the rally with all the other 40 shadow children. And when they got to the presidents  house they had the rally and the population police was going to fought with the shadow children all of the sudden. Jen got killed.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           I think that the boys and girls might like to read it because it is so                          interesting. And the people who like the book like Among the Hidden, if that is their first time reading Among the Hidden. They wouldnt know what the population law is.

About Luke's Life

Reader reviewed by Gracann Devlin

                                                    About Lukes life


            Well, Among the Hidden was about Luke and Men. The want to do what is right.


The forest was cut down. Luke cannot eat at the table, because the Population Police will see him. But now, Luke has to eat on the stairs. He has to sleep in the roof. Luke meeting Jen in the middle. He has to stay home.


            The reason I like the book. It had some exciting parts like when Luke meeting Jen .Their was some sad parts in the middle. And, something sad happen at the end.


            My Recommendation about the book Luke was a third child A person who would like the book that income with his or her friend or friends.

What I Think Of The Shadow Children

Reader reviewed by Wyatt orris

What I Think Of the Shadow Children                                     


            I like Margret Haddixs books because her books are exiting and mysteries. Her writing is amazing and can make you feel like you are one of the characters in the book.                                                                                                                 Next, the mean charters are Luck and Jen. There not allowed to exist but they exist and are hiding from the government. In fact several hundred kids are illegal and are in hiding from the government and live in fare of the propulsion


Police will find them.                                                                                                    


            Finally I recommend the book for kids in forth or fifth grade and anybody who likes mysteries that is my opinion on Among the Hidden. If you want to hear the rest you should read it for yourself.  What is your opinion?

among the people who hide!!!

Reader reviewed by Blake Beckham

AMONG THE HIDDEN        10/19/09



Luke garner is not your average boy, he is a third child. His brothers, Mathew and Mark get to go anywhere he doesnt. Of course they arent illegal. Anyway, Luke went into the attic (his room) and found that he could see thru an air vent there. While he was looking, he caught a glimpse of a face in the widow the sports familys house.



I loved it because, well mainly because it was a thrilling story, also because of one of the quotes would I dare leave this house? Do I have a choice?.



I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys thrilling stories, but seriously READ IT!!!!!!!

Among my thoughts

Reader reviewed by JJMc

                       AMONG THE HIDDEN


        Have you ever heard of the population law? Well if you havent you should read Among the Hidden. Its about a forbidden third child named Luke Garner. He is not allowed to exist under the population law. He meets another third child named Jen Tabolet .Jen is a strong and brave child who believes the only way to live is free.


        Three reason I like this book are because, it was exciting. The most exciting and thrilling thing was when Luke risked everything to go to Jens house. Second liked it because it has happy and sad parts for example, Luke has to sit on the end of the covered stair way because there afraid some one would someone would see him.



Thirdly I like it because it has a very moving part like this. Luke Im tired of living in the shadows I want to be free.


       


        Lastly I would recommend this book to anyone who has a thrilling time reading an adventures book filled with friendship, and strong moments.


               



                                                Sincerely,


                                                       J. Jordan McCarthy

The Illeagal Children

Reader reviewed by Jordan Whitmer

Ive never been under a population law, but author Margret Peterson Haddix made me think I was the whole time. As I was reading, Luke is an illegal third child he sees a face in the sports familys house which he already knew had two kids, so he made a plot to go over.


            First, the reason I liked it was how brave Jen and Luke are. The second reason is theirs sad and happy parts.Jen is brave because she risked her life for freedom. Luke is brave because he goes outside instead of doing what his mom & dad told him to do. It would be like me and my brother disobeying our parents orders.


To conclude, if you want to find out the ending, read the book yourself!


I recommend any book lovers would be interested in this book.

Shadow Children

Reader reviewed by Danielle Robinson


Shadow Children


            Well, it all started when the p.p. made a law that you can only have two children. So Luke is a third child. Luke is a third child because his parents wanted him. So he goes and risked his life.



            Therefore, I like the book because it has interesting parts. And I could not repeat could not put the book down, because I think it is a very good book. And Luke had to sit on the steps at dinner it broke my heart, because he should be at the table with his family. And Luke is so brave, because he goes to Jens house and risked his life when he goes out there.



            My recommendation for this book is that if you like to read books this is the book you would read. I would say that if you like to read chapter books pick up this book. You will love this book!

The Brave Shadow Children

Reader reviewed by Dakotah Thomas

                                                                                                            Luke and Jen are friends but how they meet is what you have to find out by reading this book. Its also about how Luke keeps visiting.                                                                  I liked this book because its funny, crazy and exciting. This book is fun and keeps you guessing. My favorite character in this book is Jen because she is funny, crazy and can be a little out her mind some times.                                                                                       I would recommend this book to someone who likes excitement, laughter, a good fun book. This book is a great book to read on rainy days.                                                

            So read this book and find out how they meet. And tell me your opinion about this book Among The Hidden
