Caught or Not

Reader reviewed by Lleime Trujillo

       Ive never heard of a law like this one. Let me explain the law.  Well the population law says that a family can just have two kids .So Luke makes me feel like it really did happen. Its like me in the book. Well Luke Garner is a third child so that means hes illegal .So all his life he has been hiding and dreaming that one day he will be free. Well one day he sees something in the neighbors house. The sports family has two boys but already left for school. Would a boy be sick or is it a third child? Find out!


         First, I really truly love this book because it has mysterious parts in it .Such as will


he risk his life to go find out if its a third child?


        To conclude, I advise this book to people who like mysterious things who like to try to find up whats next, of course sad and happy moments . You have to read its still available for you to read it.

The mysteries of Among the Hidden

Reader reviewed by Isaiah Ervin

This is a story of a young third child named Luke. He has never gone to school, never been to his friends house, as a matter of fact he has no friends. He has never been to a school, nor has no friends because third children are illegal.                                                                                                                                                                                                      I like the book because it is great for children who are in the 4-7. I also like the book because it scares third children half to death if the third children law was real.                                                                                                                                                              People who like to read should read this book and the other Among the Hidden. I think people who like to be shocked should read it too. Also people who like to be amazed should read it too.

shadow children

Reader reviewed by Carson Clark

Among the hid is about Luke and Jen meeting each other when he saw the face in the window so he went to found out what it is and it was Jen then they go to the rally and something happens to Jen but you will haft to found out when you read among the hidden. I liked among the hidden by Margret Peterson haddix because they got to go to the rally and that Jen and Luke would sneak around all the time


Second they made fake IDs to go to the rally. I though it was interesting because Jen got caught but that was also bad that you will haft to found out what happens next.


I recommend this book to people who are eight and up and to people who like mysteries.

The Shadow Children

Reader reviewed by Maddie Hemmerle

Among The Hidden is about Luke and his family. Luke has to hide from the outside because he is a third child. There is a Population law that says you have to only two kids only. He has two brothers and of course a mom and a dad. His brothers names are Matthew and Mark. Matthew and Mark can actually go outside and go to school. Luke felt like he was in prison, he hated to hide. But when he was just about to lose hope, he saw a face, a kind of young face in the Sports family window when everybody already left. He starts to make a plan to go meet the face. He finally got the idea, goes outside, and goes inside the Sports family house. He was very excited about meeting another third child. Her name was Jen; she has a very good personality and is very brave. But when she asks Luke to join her for the rally, will he go?


       First I thought the book was very interesting and entertaining. I liked reading about the Population law and Luke and Jen. If the Population law was in South Carolina, I would very sad because Im a third child and I wouldnt be able to go outside or meet anybody. My favorite quote in the book in the book was she She wanted to live. Not die. Not hide. Live. I thought that was a good quote. Its a really strong quote. My favorite character is Luke because I thought Luke was a brave curious character. When he was learning all these things that Jen told him and him going to Jens house from his house was a very interesting part. I thought that Jen was cool because she got to go outside even if she was a third child and I thought she was brave because she is brave enough to go to the rally.


         Second I didnt like what happened at Jen at the rally. It was kind of shocking. I didnt like the part when Jen cut her hand for Luke and squeezed out blood onto the carpet. It was touching but, it almost made me throw up. I thought it was kind of sad when Lukes mom told him he couldnt be in the kitchen or eat with them anymore.

         My rating for this book is 5 stars. This is a very exciting, entertaining, interesting, cant put down book. People from 7 to 85 will love this book. 7 because I dont think little kids like 5 and 6 years old will understand this book.

Luke and Jen

Reader reviewed by Kara Blackwell

Luke and Jen



What happen in Among the Hidden Is that Luke meets another third child just like him .He becomes friends with Jen. Jen talks all about the rally in this book .Close to the middle of the book Jen comes to Luke house during the night. They talk about the rally .Before leaving Luke house, Jen says We can only hope. Good bye Luke.


First reason, I like this book because Luke becomes friends with Jen. And they will always be friends forever. Second Reason, Luke does not get caught in Jen house.


            I think my friends and my mom should like this book because it talks all about friendship. I hope they like this book.

The Third Brave Children

Reader reviewed by Kimmie White

              Ive never heard of a population law until I read Among The Hidden. Jen was also very brave, but one thing I couldnt decide was which one was braver Luke or Jen. Most people thought it was Jen because she didnt care about the Population Police. Luke was always afraid for example when Jen put his name on the computer he said The Population Police cant find me because of what you did can they?                                                                                                                                



First, I liked the book mostly because of Jen. I liked Luke also. I liked how Jen was always sarcastic and, I liked Luke because he always seamed to be afraid, but it wasnt funny that he was always. It was just interesting of how many things he was afraid of.                                                                                                                                                                                        



              Lastly, I would recommend this book to people who like mysteries and excitement. I liked how it had a mixture of excitement and mysteries. So trust me you will not put the book down until you finish it.

A day in the Shadows

Reader reviewed by Danielle Blackburn

I think Ive ever read such an amazing book like Among the Hidden. In this book you will go back in a time were a Population law stops people from having more than three kids; and saying two is plenty. When you read this book you get to meet a boy named Luke. Luke is an illegal third; that lives with mother; father; and two older bothers Matthew and Mark. When Luke spots a face in a window; but; he already knows that two other children live there.




First; I liked the book because Margret Peterson Haddixs books are just amazing; I was surprised when I found out people werent allowed to have more than two children!




Therefore my recommendation this book is for kids; but adults too; but for kids through 3rd and 5th grade; and kids who like amazing; and heartbreaking statements!
