Luke Garner is a illegal third child that lives in an attic!!! One day, trees around hes house are cut down.  Hes mom says: Luke! Inside .Now. then Luke says This is the last time Ill ever be allowed outside again!!! He has been called inside for the last time!!!      




The first reason I liked the book is because its filled with adventure. Another reason is one day he sees a fase in a window. Could it be another third child ???




                                                                                                                                              I recommend this book for people 7+!!!

          Among The Hidden is a very interesting book. It is about a third child named Luke Garner who only knows his mother, father, and his brothers Mathew and Mark. He only knows them because he lives in a place where women can only have two children. One day while everybody in his family are either gone at school or at work, Luke looks out the windows and sees somebody in his neighbors house. Luke knows exactly how many people are living in each house so he thinks its a robber who has broken in, but he also has some other ideas about who it might be. Luke decides after many days that he will go over to their house and see who it might be. When he finally goes over he has to rip open the screen door to get in. Once he gets in he notices that the security system is going off, (real trouble for Luke)! he hears a beeping noise and follows it through the house. he finds a computer room with someone sitting in the chair typing. He accidently gasped  and she turned around and suddenly she tackles him. Luke thinks she might be another third child just like him. But you'll have to read the book to find out what happens next!
            I think this book doesn't have an age limit so if you're interested in a book with comedy, adventure, and excitement then this book is just right for you. You might be interested in some of Margeret's other books to because she's an awesome author!

           Among the Hidden was a very-good-hard-to-put-down kind of book. It is about a boy named Luke who is illegal and has to hide all the time because he is a third child in a place that only allows women to have 2 children. Then he meets a girl named Jen, who does everything Luke has ever known to be illegal. He has secret meetings with her all the time, then he finds out that she has a plan to come out hiding. Can he trust her enough to go with her? Can he live his lie without going?


          This book had a lot to like about it. Its hard not to make a mile long list. I liked the fact that its realistic fiction and you really know it because Margaret Peterson Haddix make it as real as it can get. It also makes you conscious about the future. I was on the edge of my seat when Luke had his first meeting with Jen. It was sad that Luke couldnt live a normal life because of the population law. I also really liked Jen because she was a risk taker and wanted to tell the government things like give me liberty or give me death


          I would recommend this book to anyone who likes jump-out-of your-seat-action books because it had lots of action init. It was also a book for adventure lovers because Jen was an adventure lover. And also Among the Hidden is in the shadow children series, so read the rest of the series.

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 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!

this book is...wow
  It's all about a world where a family cant have more then 2 kids, but some families break the rules.
Like the garner family. they have a 3 son named Luke and while his brothers go to school her has to stay up it the attic.
To watch his whole forest back yard be torn down to build houses. He thought it would be a night mare! no more going out side well hidden by the trees! Until her notices they's a family like his! And thats when her meets Jen to find out her fother works with the populatin police (the people who live to kill 3 children)

Hey! Are you looking for a good book to read? well you should check out "Among the hidden" by margaret peterson Haddix. Its the kind of story that the author makes you feel like your in the story and you can picture the scenes.
Its also taken place in the present.
I also like the story because the author makes the characters seem real.
I like the all the characters in the story exept for the goverment because they arent fair in the story and they have a lot of rules.
This book has a lot of surprices. some are bad and some are good but my faviorite surprices in the story are the ones that you didnt know was coming.
i think this is  a really good book to read. i recommend that you read this book  if you like realistic fiction stories. You would really enjoy this story.

   Looking for a good book that would keep you up all night because you can't put it down?Well here's one for you,it's called Among the Hidden,by Margaret Peterson Haddin.There are six series of these but make sure to read them in order.The genre would be fiction.
   The author in this book makes me feel like Im in the story like its happeing to me.I can actually picture every part they're doing and all the chararcters.I would say it's in the past because you can have more than two children and four.The setting conbines alot with the whole story and all.I say you would enjoy a book like this one.
  In among the Hidden,there are two main characters.They're bother hidden children that live their lives at home.They seem like ordinary people with difficult lives.If you were to compare both personalities they're both very different.One is very quiet scared little kid.The other one is crazy and risky.They both have two opposite minds.I did like the characters,they were reallly great.They had alot of emotions.
   The plot had many unsuspected things,and many changes.Which made the book even better than it is.It leaves you hanging at some parts but you'll be suprised in others.There are some parts that you may not believe but they're shockers.
    I seriously likes this book,I would've never have picked up and read it because just looking at the front cover,no lie,it looked boring!But it ends up being an awesome book.I would recommend it to anybody who's bored at home,go to tne library and ask for Among the Hidden.

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!
