I’ve also been reading through The Shadow Children series by Margaret Peterson Haddix. While I found Book 1 a little slow, the following novels have left me out of breath and with stubby fingernails. Haddix picks up the pace with each one. Plot twists keep readers and characters alike off balance. I’ve currently reading Book 7: Among the Free. Will the Shadow Children finally gain a voice and take their rightful place in society?

Among the Hidden steps forward as the first book of Margaret Peterson Haddix’s the Shadow Children sequence. In a future society that permits only two children per family, Luke is a third. Confined to the house, he lives the life of the hidden only to discover he is not alone. Will Luke join the other shadow children in their quest for freedom, or will his fear of the Population Police keep him “among the hidden”?
