When Luke was younger he thought when he was as old as Matthew and Mark he could stop hiding but luke is older and knows that that will never happen because Luke is a third child and third children are illegell. Luke is very lonley until he sees a very strange face that he knows dosent belong.I love this book for all its sad and never forgetable characters.

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.

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 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 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.

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. =)

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.

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!

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)
