I don't understand why this novel series isn't adapted to the small screen. It has everything imaginable to keep viewers and readers glued to know what's happening next. Only the author knows and she has done a brilliant job in keeping my attention. It's fast reading and it only took me 2 hours to read it.
The story picks up with Mathias and the shadow children (third children are illegalized) hiding from the Population Police that are modern day Nazis who hunt the illegal third children. The purpose of the Population Police was established during the droughts and famine period where food was scarce. Their solution was to permit only 2 children per household to maintain enough food for everybody. But in the series, we learn about how the politics, corruption, and evil manipulative ways that the Population Police in this unidentified country is allowing their own fellow citizens to die of hunger daily.
Mathias ends up in enemy headquarters of the Population Police after a heroic action. He is befriended by a highly esteemed officer who dies. Mathias is treated highly by the secretive commander of the Population Police who treated the Officer like a son and protege. During his time there, Mathias is given access to secretive information to help the cause. Won't go any further, the story is compelling, imaginative, and suspenseful!

I would definitely recommend this series for anyone ten and up. My almost eleven year old daughter calls me overprotective and that may be true :), but I read the books before her. The first book "Among the Hidden" has one spot where it talks about a bra. Also, the second book "Among the Impostors" talks about boys looking at ( I believe it was) pictures of naked girls. This was bad enough I considered not letting her read the rest of the series; however, those are the only things I found inappropriate for her age. She is not a a big reader but cannot put these books down.

I attended a book fair with my son and we picked up the first book in this series "Among the Hidden". For some reason, I started reading it at the fair (while he was off with his teachers) and I was hooked! I've read the full series now and now I go through my son's "chapter books" (he's in 7th grade) and raid his literature. This book helps you see everything through the eyes of a child, but it has tremendous sociopolitical analysis. And it's just fun to read. Good science fiction.

Very spell bounding. It keeps you wanting to scream to the kid. Keep living, woke up. You wanted the child to come to himself, and not be afraid. Which in the end, the teaching of a holy man, kept him strong, and the joy of reunion made him even stronger.
