Really intense and an unbelievable book
Reader reviewed by Jocelyne/Mary Lyon
I say that Among The Hidden is a really amazing book. So many interesting things happen in the book that you just can't believe can happen in real life. You will not be able to put the book down for a second. Reading the book will make you feel an experience that you have never felt at all. The first time I read the first few chapters I could'nt stop reading I wanted to have one of my own. I advise you to read the book and the rest of the series.

Well what I thought about this book was amazing.I want to read it again but I can't because I don't have the book, and I read it at school with my teacher and classmates. This book was really exciting to read. The part when Jen died I felt like crying, but I got it together. I can't wait to read the next book!!! This book was seriously amazing and thats only my opinion. Other people might think the same or may think its beyond amazing. I couldn't believe that there was a popultion back in the days, and how dangerous it was to be a third or fourth child. When i first started to read it I had chills running down my spine and I reliazed how lucky I'm to have my little sister alive.I wouldn't want only one sister or brother. Every one is lucky to be or have a third child right now, BUT you never know when theres still population. Its so sad when an child dies when there just so young and inacent. Hopefuly in the future there still won't be a population and everyone is a free soul. =)
Don't stop reading!!!!!!

This is a great book that you will never want to stop reading. I like this book because it has many good parts that will want to make you keep reading. One of my favorite part was when the main charecter and third child Luke saw the face in the other house and he didn't know what to do,if he should go or just stay home all alone for the rest of his life. My other favorite part was when Luke found out that Jen's dad worked for the population police. He kept thinking that if he had a third child why would he work for them.In this book you can't have more then three children and if you did your third child would be kille. So I hope you are intrested and hopefully you will read this great book.
best book i ever read

This book is rely tens and amacing. The story talks about luke wich is the third chiled that is hiden because if they find him the population police will kill him or have his parents pay a fine. I think that it is tens because luke has no friends ,nonormal life , and has to risk hi life to see a gril that is a third chiled too.Her name is Jen and her fader works for the population police wich works only to find third kids. Butover all it is one of the most wonderful books that I have read.
This book is fantastic!

This book is about Luke, a hidden child, who must make a tough decision by the end of the novel. The end will leave you hanging and you WILL want to read the next in the series! I just taught this book in my class and I believe most of my students really enjoyed this novel. The themes in the novel include isolation, freedom, courage, and of course bring up the debate of population control. I think it is an engaging read, especially for readers who may not like to read. Just try it and I think you will be hooked!
Among The Hidden, Among The Best?

Among The Hiden...I remember reading it in the 5th grade. It's THAT great of a book. I remember it. It was interesting, exciting, had a great storyline, and I didn't want to put it down. Imagine living in a world where, if you were a 3rd born child, you had to hide yourself from the world, just so you could live, being mistreated and hunted down because the government can't afford to pay people enough to feed big families. One of the greatest books by the author, I recommend this book (and its series) to anybody of any age.

hi! im writing to you about this astonishing book called (Among the Hidden), the auther of this book is Margeret p.Haddix. And its also a mystery book if some of you like a little mystery, and its kind of a thriller to! this book will leave you so seechless that will make you beginning for more.
the setting for this story is basically the present day because the poeple from the story have computer's, t,v's and lots of things that we have today. The auther mad me feel like part of the story because he made everything realistice to my imagination, And he also made every sound,fealing sound more real to me.
The main characters of this astanashing good book are Luke, Jen, Jens Dad. The auther makes this fake characters come to life when you read this book, its like they are so real to us.
Among The Hidden is a good book ,it will you speechless , and with a fat "OMG" thats how it will leave you when your done with the whloe book.
I would recommend this book to all the good readers out there and I hope you will enjoy this book as much as i did! :) :) :) :) :)

Are you looking for a good book to enjoy? Well, you should read Among the Hidden by Margaret Peterson Haddix. If you like realistic fiction and mystery, then this book is for you.
While I was reading the book, I could imagine a lot of scenes. One scene I can picture in my mind is when the farm has new neighbors, but they are rich. Mostly the setting takes place in the farm, however, it seems real. In some parts, I can imagine myself in the farm being one of the characters. In one scene, the author explains a character's house and I can picture myself in there. Mostly it's the past because they don't mention using a lot of technology, they just mention that some one has a computer that that makes a noise.
The book has two main characters and their names are Luke and Jen. Luke is like a real person because Luke is shy, afraid and always asking questions. He can be negative, and he also is a third child. Jen, in the other case, is the opposite of Luke. She is positive, full of excitement, she's a third child and does everything that other children do. What I like about Luke and Jen is that even though they fight, they always forgive each other.
The book is exciting! I wouldn't let go of the book! Luke garner is a third child and he is an illegal kid. Families can only have two children. Luke has never gone to school or has never had friends or done anything like other kids. Luke lives in hidding and can go out and be in the woods, until the Goverment had to build new houses and cut the woods down. Now with new people in the house where he lives, he can't go outside. However one day he saw a shadow in another house. There were already two kids living in that house. Could it be another third child?
What i felt about the book is that some pf the events can actually come true in some other countries. I would recommend it to anyone who is intersted in realistic fiction or mystery because if you're intersted in something else and not that you won't enjoy it. My opinion is that i really enjoyed it and i never put the book down!

Do you want a good book that you won't take youre eyes off ?.I say I know one and Its called Among the Hidden by margeret Peterson Haddix Its a realistic fiction mystery.
Its not really similar to real life because in the book you can only have 2 children and its really interesting because there is a third child.Sometimes the author makesme feel like im part of the story.she makes me feel like im in the story Its like the present time for me .
what I notice is that the author makes the charaters real like if I jen and my brother was luke .always about things .what I think about the characters is that they are really interesting because luke found else when he was looking in the window .I'm telling no more ,you have to read .
In this story it involves police ,children ,parents ,families and other chracters like luke he was a third child and stayed in the attic all the time .
you know what I feel about this story ?I'tsthat you get joy when its just readthis book if you like realistic fiction and mytery.
the greatest book

Hey! Do you like Realistic fiction books with a little bit of mystery in it?Then you should read Among the Hidden by Margaret Peterson Haddix.It would blow your mind.
It's not similar to real life because our goverment let us have a third or fourth child.I picture myself as Jen because I always want to be free like Jen and do stuff like her.Also it's in the present.
The author does make the characters seem as if they're real people because it sounds in the story like they are your Best buddies.I don't dislike anyone I like all the characters.
Luke is a third child and he has never been to school. he never has gone to a friends house for a sleepover or have a party. He dosen't even have a friend, luke is a shadow kid, they cannot have a third child because if the population police finds out, he dies.His entire life he was always hiding and he can't even go outside.Then one day luke meets a girl that's a third child too.Does Luke get involved in Jen's scary plan?Will he do it or not?
What i feel about the book is tht it is very intresting and in some countries that could happen.But if you like realistic fiction or mystery, I will recommend you this book. It's awesome. I couldn't take my eyes out of the book!
