TITLE: AMONG THE HIDDEN (SHADOW CHILDREN #1)
AUTHOR: MARGARET PETERSON HADDIX
GENRE: YOUNG ADULT FICTION
RATING: 4 STARS
This is a book about a young boy, Luke, who is a 3rd child. What that means is that he is his parents 3rd kid, in a world where 3rd children are not allowed. He has lived in hiding for his entire life. No one outside of his immediate family even knows that he exists. He's never met any other children besides his 2 older brothers, never been to school, never gone to a store. He's never even watched tv or used a computer, because the government has claimed that they can discover and track 3rd children through phones, tv and computers. Then one day, amazingly enough, Luke meets another 3rd child, and his entire world begins to change.
This is a series that was written for younger readers, but I enjoyed it thoroughly! Luke and his life just seemed to grab my attention, and I just wanted to find out what would happen. They are really quick reads for an adult, but well worth it.
