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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

                                             The Brave Children                                                                    


 I liked the book because I learned about the population law. I thought it was interesting when Luke and Jen became friend.  I thought it was interesting that people couldnt have more than 2 kids. Luke and   Jen are both shadow children.


First the reason, I liked the book was because it was interesting but it had a lot of adventuring in it. I liked it when Luke ran over to Jens house one day and


 broke the screen down to see if Jen was home but she wasnt her dad was. I was 


  shocked when Luke and Jens dad first saw each other, and Jens dad walked    


    down stairs with a gun, and I thought he was going to shoot Luke but he didnt


   Then Luke picked the gun up when   Jens dad wasnt looking and about killed


    Jens dad but Jens dad talked him out of killing him.


             To conclude, I think people 9-12 should read this book it might be easy for  


      people older. I promise you that you dont want to put it down. You will get 


     stuck in the book like I did I promise. Teachers you should read it to your class.
