Are you looking for a book to leave you speechless?
The you should read Among The Hidden By Margere Peterson Hiddix. This realstic fitic on book will blow your mid away.
This book is not similar to real life because there's a lot of stuff that pretty sill going on in the book that could not happy in out time.
The author does make you feel like in the story next to Luke just watcing and feeling his emotians and everything thats going on. I could picture everything.Margeret explains it so well.Its in the present because we have computer right now and other things thats we have that they have too.
The author does make the character into real people because they have personalities that alot of people do have in this world like fear&bravery.
I like Jen she is my favortie charatcer becouse she deso thing without caring what other people say or do just like me.
The plot of this book is mainly about a shadow child. He he's illegal, he he shouldn't be born but he is so one dat he meet this other shadow chuld and she has a plan for how to bee freen and live the way they really have to live.Luke has fear in his plan. Is he going to follow this plan that she has?
I really like this book.Its my type of book that i would keep reading over&over. And yes I do recommend this book to other people because ist really freat and you will just smiply love it.

Have you been looking for a good book to read?Well,I'm sure you will enjoy Among the Hidden by Margaret Peterson Haddix.If you like realistic fiction and mystery,then this book is for you.
I felt as if I was in the attic with Luck,around the farm where there used to be trees.Now there's houses where the Barons live.Being in the attic without the present technology was the best way he could be saved and hidden.This book is similar to real life because theres technology we use today.Some of the scenes in the book were easy to picture in my head.
Luke and Jen are the main characters in this story.At first Luke and Jen seemed like one of my friends, but then they reminded me of all of my friends.I don't dislike any of the characters because they all had their different types of attitudes,either though or sweet or even both.
Third childeren were illegal, if they were found the populating police would deal with them.Luke lived in a wonderful farm full of trees,he couldn't be seen,he could go outside.Until one day when they cut the trees down, and the houses where Barons would live were being built.
The book Among the Hidden was a great book.I recommend you to read it,it's full of surprises and mystery.You won't regret reading this book!
Read this awsome book!

Hey! Are you looking for a good book to read? well you should check out "Among the hidden" by margaret peterson Haddix. Its the kind of story that the author makes you feel like your in the story and you can picture the scenes.
Its also taken place in the present.
I also like the story because the author makes the characters seem real.
I like the all the characters in the story exept for the goverment because they arent fair in the story and they have a lot of rules.
This book has a lot of surprices. some are bad and some are good but my faviorite surprices in the story are the ones that you didnt know was coming.
i think this is a really good book to read. i recommend that you read this book if you like realistic fiction stories. You would really enjoy this story.

this book is...wow
It's all about a world where a family cant have more then 2 kids, but some families break the rules.
Like the garner family. they have a 3 son named Luke and while his brothers go to school her has to stay up it the attic.
To watch his whole forest back yard be torn down to build houses. He thought it would be a night mare! no more going out side well hidden by the trees! Until her notices they's a family like his! And thats when her meets Jen to find out her fother works with the populatin police (the people who live to kill 3 children)
The Brave Illegal Children
Reader reviewed by Claire J
Luke is a illegal third child. He has been hiding all his life. Luke has never met anyone except for his mom, dad ,and two brothers, Matthew and Mark. Then one day when Luke goes outside of his home, and meets a girl who changes his life forever!
Second, the reason I liked this book is because of the excitement. One example is when a illegal third child gets tired of hiding , and goes out and speaks the truth. It also was a good friendship story.
Lastly, I would recommend this book for ages 9-12. I think Among The Hidden is for anyone who likes a great, exciting story that puts you on the edge of your seat!

Among The Hidden is and awesome book by my favorite author, Margeret Peterson Haddix. This book is an action/adventure book, with a plot that totally draws you in. This book takes place in future America, when they have almost run out of food, and have rations. Part of this rationing is to only allow 2 children per household. If, for any reason, someone decides to not follow this law, the illegal 3rd child is killed. Our main character is a 12-year-old 3rd child named Luke. He has two older brothers, Matthew and Mark, who are both perfectly legal, and go to school like normal kids. Luke, however, has to stay hidden at home in his attic, because the Population Police, a group of people who hunt for illegal 3rd kids, might find him. One day he sees a girl in the window of his neighbors house. He thinks he might be imagining it, because his neighbors already have 2 kids, unless...the girl might be an illegal 3rd child like him! While Luke is determined to find out what the deal is, the food is getting scarcer and scarcer, and the Population Police are getting more careful. Will Luke ever find out, or will the Population Police get to him first? Read this exciting book, that will keep you flipping page after page, to find out!!!
Luke and Jen

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.

The Population Law Crisis
Reader reviewed by Kyra Killian
Among The Hidden is a very interesting book. It is about a third child named Luke Garner who only knows his mother, father, and his brothers Mathew and Mark. He only knows them because he lives in a place where women can only have two children. One day while everybody in his family are either gone at school or at work, Luke looks out the windows and sees somebody in his neighbors house. Luke knows exactly how many people are living in each house so he thinks its a robber who has broken in, but he also has some other ideas about who it might be. Luke decides after many days that he will go over to their house and see who it might be. When he finally goes over he has to rip open the screen door to get in. Once he gets in he notices that the security system is going off, (real trouble for Luke)! he hears a beeping noise and follows it through the house. he finds a computer room with someone sitting in the chair typing. He accidently gasped and she turned around and suddenly she tackles him. Luke thinks she might be another third child just like him. But you'll have to read the book to find out what happens next!
I think this book doesn't have an age limit so if you're interested in a book with comedy, adventure, and excitement then this book is just right for you. You might be interested in some of Margeret's other books to because she's an awesome author!
