This is a great book that starts a great series. A young boy, Luke, lives in time when only 2 children are permitted. But Luke is the third child in his family. As a result, he must hide or be found and taken away by the Population Police. But as he grows older, he begins to wonder, are there any other hidden third children out in the world besides him? And if there are, where are they? The answer may just be closer than he thinks.

This idea of how the future could be is quite unique and this book is a great read. I would recommend this book to young adults.

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)

                                                    About Lukes life


            Well, Among the Hidden was about Luke and Men. The want to do what is right.


The forest was cut down. Luke cannot eat at the table, because the Population Police will see him. But now, Luke has to eat on the stairs. He has to sleep in the roof. Luke meeting Jen in the middle. He has to stay home.


            The reason I like the book. It had some exciting parts like when Luke meeting Jen .Their was some sad parts in the middle. And, something sad happen at the end.


            My Recommendation about the book Luke was a third child A person who would like the book that income with his or her friend or friends.

Well what I thought about this book was amazing.I want to read it again but I can't because I don't have the book, and I read it at school with my teacher and classmates. This book was really exciting to read. The part when Jen died I felt like crying, but I got it together. I can't wait to read the next book!!! This book was seriously amazing and thats only my opinion. Other people might think the same or may think its beyond amazing. I couldn't believe that there was a popultion back in the days, and how dangerous it was to be a third or fourth child. When i first started to read it I had chills running down my spine and I reliazed how lucky I'm to have my little sister alive.I wouldn't want only one sister or brother. Every one is lucky to be or have a third child right now, BUT you never know when theres still population. Its so sad when an child dies when there just so young and inacent. Hopefuly in the future there still won't be a population and everyone is a free soul. =)

Its about a girl name Jen and a boy name Luke. They were the shadow children. They couldnt get out of the house because there was a population law. And if they saw them they would get killed! And when Luke escaped from his house he went to the Sports familys house and thats when he meets Jen.





The reason I liked the book is because it was interesting because when Luke and Jen were getting on the computer to look up something. Then the part of when Jen went to the rally with all the other 40 shadow children. And when they got to the presidents  house they had the rally and the population police was going to fought with the shadow children all of the sudden. Jen got killed.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           I think that the boys and girls might like to read it because it is so                          interesting. And the people who like the book like Among the Hidden, if that is their first time reading Among the Hidden. They wouldnt know what the population law is.

This is a great book that you will never want to stop reading. I like this book because it has many good  parts that will want to make you keep reading. One of my favorite part was when the main charecter and third child Luke saw the face in the other  house and he didn't know what to do,if he should go or just stay home all alone for the rest of his life. My other favorite part was when Luke found out that Jen's dad worked for the population police. He kept thinking that if he had a third child why would he work for them.In this book you can't have more then three children and if you did your third child would be kille. So I hope you are intrested and hopefully you will read this great book.

This book is rely tens and amacing. The story talks about luke wich is the third chiled that is hiden because if they find him the population police will kill him or have his parents pay a fine. I think that it is tens because luke has no friends ,nonormal life , and has to risk hi life to see a gril that is a third chiled too.Her name is Jen and her fader works for the population police wich works only to find third kids. Butover all it is one of the most wonderful books that I have read.

I thought that this book was very good. I liked the others also but I did not like the last one, Among the Free. There is no page for that one so I am posting my review here. I thought Among the Free was rather boring and that the title should have been something different, such as Among the Confused or Among the Rebellions because the title gave it away completely. I liked it but I thought it was boring and rather predictable. Despite my review, you should still read this book.
