I am a fifth grader, and I just completed Among The Hidden by Margaret Peterson Haddix. When I was reading I kept asking to myself, "would I myself have own the guilt to have confidence in the rally of that sort?" It's something we all have our personal thoughts about. However, wouldn't it be a nice trate to have. In life ther's going to be ups and downs, positives and negetives, but that's life, and that's how it's going to be. Maybe if main character Luke, would have had the will, the ending would have a different result.

                                                                                                            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!

Ive never been under a population law, but author Margret Peterson Haddix made me think I was the whole time. As I was reading, Luke is an illegal third child he sees a face in the sports familys house which he already knew had two kids, so he made a plot to go over.


            First, the reason I liked it was how brave Jen and Luke are. The second reason is theirs sad and happy parts.Jen is brave because she risked her life for freedom. Luke is brave because he goes outside instead of doing what his mom & dad told him to do. It would be like me and my brother disobeying our parents orders.


To conclude, if you want to find out the ending, read the book yourself!


I recommend any book lovers would be interested in this book.

                       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 lives on a farm. He used to be able to play in the back yard, but that changed when the government cut down all the trees. Luke is an illegal third child, so he has to hide in the house. It has been like this since before he was born. The government only allows two children per family. Luke thinks he is the only third child. But that all changes when the people next door move in and he thinks he sees someone, after he watched everyone leave the house.

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.
