This book is about Luke, a hidden child, who must make a tough decision by the end of the novel. The end will leave you hanging and you WILL want to read the next in the series! I just taught this book in my class and I believe most of my students really enjoyed this novel. The themes in the novel include isolation, freedom, courage, and of course bring up the debate of population control. I think it is an engaging read, especially for readers who may not like to read. Just try it and I think you will be hooked!
