shadow children

Reader reviewed by matthew holliday


                                                                 Shadow children 


This book is about Luke meeting Jen one day when he snuck over Her house and broke in and was hit by Jen thats when they didnt know other but this is how they meet Luke is a shadow child the same way Luke is.                                                                                                                                                                                                                 I feel really bad that they had to stay in the house just because they were third children . If you havent read the book you should read it because it is a very good book and you will enjoy it. I liked it because it was interesting because I learned about the population law but .I think it is stupid because of how u can only have two children. But I also like the book because of how saw Jen.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  I think that is very, very cool how he would hang out with Jen but when Jen started talking about the rally he. I new something was up and even she was tiring to get Luke to go with here and 40 friends im glad he didnt go he wouldve got killed. If  u havent read this book you should read it is a very good book. I think you will enjoy it.                                                                                                                                                               I think Austin would like it thats what I would think

Among the Hidden

Reader reviewed by Hunter Sherrill

Im reading a book called Among The Hidden. It took my class and I a long time to read this book but I liked it. Now I want to read all of your other book. Its about a child that is hidden from the population police, hes a third child.  But they are not allowed to have more than two children.



            Now I want you to read all of your other books.  I have to say that I liked everything about this book. It was not too long and not too short and it was very detailed like you made us feel like we were in the book.  



            I liked this book and now I hope you do too.  I think people who like to be excited and some parts were sad.

book review

Reader reviewed by rudy

This book was a good book for children that doesn't have barely any friends.I didnt like the book because its not my type of books  l like to read.I thought when Jen died,it was the saddest part in the story
because she was Luke's only friend.  I give this rating a 3 because its a normal book.

The thrid Child

Reader reviewed by Tiger

I didn't like the book because I like books with fighting and action.  This book was more about emotions. I thought it was a 3 star book. I love the part  when Jen tackles Luke.  GoodBye forever!!!!!!

opinions

Reader reviewed by Maggie

I honestly believe this a good book. The author did a good job at getting us clung to wanting to know what was going to happen next. I also liked how he expressed each characters opinion about the goverment. What was reallysad was when Jen died, I almost wanted to cry. That is my opinion and personal experions with this story.

Among the Interesting

Reader reviewed by Fiona Flamingo

I thought Magaret Peterson Haddix's latest works was intriguing and suspenful. It's about Luke, a third child in a world that has a law against it. Then he meets Jen, another third child with a different opinion that his own. While LUke is willinging to hide out in his room for the rest of his life, Jen isn't afraid at all of the Population Police. Although childeren's fiction, this book had me at the edge of my seat. I couldn't put it down! It's a faced-paced, action-adventure novel that will appeal to anyone willing to delve into the deeper side of things.

good but freaky

Reader reviewed by Jersey

this is one of those books that has so may seques that you must read it. It is based on a USA where it is illegal to have more than two children if you do have a another child the child will be killed and you will be fined. The story follows a third child that finds out about more third, fourth, even fifth children.

This book wasn't hidden in my mind because it rocked!!!!!

Reader reviewed by Megan

i liked this book! but like some other books ive rated id give it a three and a half but theres no halves lol! so anyways, i liked the plot that the author thought of. but i wish i could go into the story and change it, because having a rule that no one is allowed to have no more than three kids is REALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLY stupid. its racist and mean!! in a way, you're trying to end the human race in that town! which is stupid and cruel! but that evil plot made it fun to read.
