Imagine a world where the government limits you to have two children in order to ration the world’s last resources. This is the reality of the characters in Among the Hidden by Margaret Haddix. The main character, Luke, is a third child; so in other words, he is illegal. Luke has to hide in his house and is unable to meet his relatives or even go to school for his own safety. One day, he sees a face peek through the window from one of his neighbors’ houses. He knows that nobody can be home because the two kids aren’t home and the parents left for the day; so Luke decides to go outside and investigate to see if they have a third child as well.
I had a lot of fun reading this book; so much so that I have read through the entire series and even read this book multiple times. Among the Hidden is a science fiction book that I could never put down. If you enjoy science fiction books with a lot of action, then you will really enjoy this book.
