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.
