Its an amazing book. Like people can actually now what the whole book is mainly about it can it be a prejudice book?or it can mostly be like it could be about liberty, or it can be about death, or friendship, and it could be about a how people live their lives. I think that this book is really amazing and it reach out on how luke is being a third child which makes him feel really bad for him.

Great story...I think it was a bit childish though. It was very captivating and suspenseful.
I was amazed when Luke met the other child.  Even though I kind of predicted that he would meet someone like him, it was still a bit surprising! I would recommend this book to people who like mysterious reading

Among the hidden was an amazing book. My class read this book and we all loved it. It was really intense and made me want to always read more. And to prove you that I loved it sooooooooooooooo much I even read ahead. BUT there are some sad parts in the book. But in the end I LOVED AMONG THE HIDDEN.

This book is about a boy who is a third child. One day he saw a face in the window of a house after everyone in that house had already. He really wants to find out who is there so one day he sneaks over there and finds a girl named Jen. Luke goes over there every once and a while. Then the rest of the book is really good but I don't want to give anything away. Sooooooo............... What i thought of the book is that it was really good. I loved the way there where so many cliff hangers. i give this book a 4, 4 awsome ness ii

I loved this book! My librarian, Mrs. Cummings, read it to us over a matter of weeks. I loved it so much, the day after she finished reading it to us, i ran to the library to see if it was alvailable, but another Haddix-Loving fan had already picked it up.

I give this book 5 stars easily; it deserves 10!!!

After the Government purchases the woods behind the Garners house from them to build mansions, twelve-year-old Luke is forced to remain inside and away from windows. He looks on with envy as his older brothers complain about going to school and perform outdoor chores on the Garners farm, and yet he mustnt complain, because they are keeping him hidden for his own safety.

Luke Garner is a third child, one of the Shadow Children, illegal under the Population Law. To the rest of the world except his immediate family, he doesnt exist. His world is his familys farm, and, after the taking away of their forest, his house.
Then one day, in the window of one of the mansions in his backyard, he spies the face of a young girl in a house he knows already has two children. Luke soon strikes up a friendship with Jenny, another illegal third child.

Unlike Luke, however, Jenny is full of strength and ideas. She plans to gather a group of Shadow Children, found from their online chat board, and march to the White House. She invites Luke along, but he is afraid. Does he choose to stand up for his own rights or to save himself for perhaps a better future?

AMONG THE HIDDEN marks the beginning of a startling new series by acclaimed author Margeret Peterson Haddix. Anyone who enjoys dystopian books should pick up this one.

This is an amazing book. It's in a time where families could only have a specific number of kids. One kid is the extra child and he has to hide all the time. The government will take him if he gets caught. One day he decides to leave the house and he meets another hidden child. It is all about what they see after coming out of hiding.
