                       AMONG THE HIDDEN


        Have you ever heard of the population law? Well if you havent you should read Among the Hidden. Its about a forbidden third child named Luke Garner. He is not allowed to exist under the population law. He meets another third child named Jen Tabolet .Jen is a strong and brave child who believes the only way to live is free.


        Three reason I like this book are because, it was exciting. The most exciting and thrilling thing was when Luke risked everything to go to Jens house. Second liked it because it has happy and sad parts for example, Luke has to sit on the end of the covered stair way because there afraid some one would someone would see him.



Thirdly I like it because it has a very moving part like this. Luke Im tired of living in the shadows I want to be free.


       


        Lastly I would recommend this book to anyone who has a thrilling time reading an adventures book filled with friendship, and strong moments.


               



                                                Sincerely,


                                                       J. Jordan McCarthy

AMONG THE HIDDEN        10/19/09



Luke garner is not your average boy, he is a third child. His brothers, Mathew and Mark get to go anywhere he doesnt. Of course they arent illegal. Anyway, Luke went into the attic (his room) and found that he could see thru an air vent there. While he was looking, he caught a glimpse of a face in the widow the sports familys house.



I loved it because, well mainly because it was a thrilling story, also because of one of the quotes would I dare leave this house? Do I have a choice?.



I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys thrilling stories, but seriously READ IT!!!!!!!

                                                                                                            Luke and Jen are friends but how they meet is what you have to find out by reading this book. Its also about how Luke keeps visiting.                                                                  I liked this book because its funny, crazy and exciting. This book is fun and keeps you guessing. My favorite character in this book is Jen because she is funny, crazy and can be a little out her mind some times.                                                                                       I would recommend this book to someone who likes excitement, laughter, a good fun book. This book is a great book to read on rainy days.                                                

            So read this book and find out how they meet. And tell me your opinion about this book Among The Hidden

Shadow Children


            Well, it all started when the p.p. made a law that you can only have two children. So Luke is a third child. Luke is a third child because his parents wanted him. So he goes and risked his life.



            Therefore, I like the book because it has interesting parts. And I could not repeat could not put the book down, because I think it is a very good book. And Luke had to sit on the steps at dinner it broke my heart, because he should be at the table with his family. And Luke is so brave, because he goes to Jens house and risked his life when he goes out there.



            My recommendation for this book is that if you like to read books this is the book you would read. I would say that if you like to read chapter books pick up this book. You will love this book!

 Among The Hidden is about Luke and his family. Luke has to hide from the outside because he is a third child. There is a Population law that says you have to only two kids only. He has two brothers and of course a mom and a dad. His brothers names are Matthew and Mark. Matthew and Mark can actually go outside and go to school. Luke felt like he was in prison, he hated to hide. But when he was just about to lose hope, he saw a face, a kind of young face in the Sports family window when everybody already left. He starts to make a plan to go meet the face. He finally got the idea, goes outside, and goes inside the Sports family house. He was very excited about meeting another third child. Her name was Jen; she has a very good personality and is very brave. But when she asks Luke to join her for the rally, will he go?


       First I thought the book was very interesting and entertaining. I liked reading about the Population law and Luke and Jen. If the Population law was in South Carolina, I would very sad because Im a third child and I wouldnt be able to go outside or meet anybody. My favorite quote in the book in the book was she She wanted to live. Not die. Not hide. Live. I thought that was a good quote. Its a really strong quote. My favorite character is Luke because I thought Luke was a brave curious character. When he was learning all these things that Jen told him and him going to Jens house from his house was a very interesting part. I thought that Jen was cool because she got to go outside even if she was a third child and I thought she was brave because she is brave enough to go to the rally.


         Second I didnt like what happened at Jen at the rally. It was kind of shocking. I didnt like the part when Jen cut her hand for Luke and squeezed out blood onto the carpet. It was touching but, it almost made me throw up. I thought it was kind of sad when Lukes mom told him he couldnt be in the kitchen or eat with them anymore.


         My rating for this book is 5 stars. This is a very exciting, entertaining, interesting, cant put down book. People from 7 to 85 will love this book. 7 because I dont think little kids like 5 and 6 years old will understand this book.

A few days later luke goes over to the  house and tries to get in but he did not know that there was a alarm. Will Luke get caught by his parents or will the population police come? If u want to find out what will happen or what poplation police are then pick up this book.
    Any person could read it but its mostly for childern ages 9-11 are proably the best ages. This is a really good book so do not wait to long to get the book or cheack it out from a public or school libary.

                                             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.
