Among the Imposters (Shadow Children #2)Hot
Out of hiding for the first time in his life, he knows that any minute one of his new classmates at Hendricks School for Boys could discover his secret: that he's a third child passing as the recently deceased Lee Grant. And in a society where it's illegal for families to have more than two children, being a third child means certain death at the hands of the dreaded Population Police.
His first experience outside the safety of his home is bewildering. There's not a single window anywhere in the school; Luke can't tell his classmates apart (even as they subject him to brutal hazing); and the teachers seem oblivious to it all.
Desperate to fit in, Luke endures the confusion and teasing until he discovers an unlocked door to the outside, and a chance to understand what is really going on. But to take this chance -- to find out the secrets of Hendricks -- Luke will need to put aside his fears and discover a courage that a lifetime in hiding couldn't thwart.
Once again, best-selling author Margaret Peterson Haddix delights her fans with this spine-tingling account of an all-too-possible future. Among the Impostors is a worthy companion to Among the Hidden and a heart-stopping thriller in its own right.

Well he's getting bulling from them he is trying to read a note from Jen's farther, Jen is in book 1 Among the Hidden.

(I aprove this message.)
All his life, Luke Garner has had to live in fear and hiding. He is a third child, an illegal by the passing of the Population Law. Knowledge of his existence spells his death and the death of all who tried to protect him.
Lukes dead best friend Jen Talbots dad manages to get him a fake I.D. Suddenly he can be out in the world, mingling among others as Lee Grant, a Baron who had actually died in a skiing accident. At Hendricks School for Boys, a terrified Luke tries to adjust to life among other people. He is afraid all the time of someone finding out that he is a third child, and yet doesnt want to forget his real identity, either.
One day, Luke finds a mysterious door in the wall and escapes outside school confines, only to discover that the whole entire school is windowless. This sets of a chain of events involving other third children and Lukes own growing sense of self-confidence, awareness, and knowledge. However, not everyone is who they seem, and Luke must be extremely careful...or else the imposter among them will betray them all.
AMONG THE IMPOSTERS consists mostly of Luke trying to adjust to life in society. While its perhaps not as exciting as the first in the series, this book is a chillingly convincing story of societal adjustment, and it will only involve readers ever more into this eerie and complex world. I look forward to reading the next book in the series!
This book is an amazing book.. it has mystery's, poblems, out comes,etc. Alot of young adults would love this book. I know i did! If you like mystery's this is the book for you. Once you start reading it's so hard to stop because each chapter ends in a question that the next chapter answers! I love this book! And i'm sure you would too!
