It has really been years since I read this book. But, I remember that this is what started me reading like a compulsive, crazy person. It's deep for such a young person to read.

This book felt a little young to be, but at the same time is really well done. It is the perfect start to a series that is reminiscent to other big YA books, but can be read to younger kids without being too scary. The idea is not super new, but I love the way it is handled. Also, the books leaves at a place where the door is wide open for so much more to come!

           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!

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.

        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!

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?

     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!

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



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.

              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.
