Among the Hidden (Shadow Children Book 1) Kindle Edition
Luke has never been to school. He's never had a birthday party, or gone to a friend's house for an overnight. In fact, Luke has never had a friend.
Luke is one of the shadow children, a third child forbidden by the Population Police. He's lived his entire life in hiding, and now, with a new housing development replacing the woods next to his family's farm, he is no longer even allowed to go outside.
Then, one day Luke sees a girl's face in the window of a house where he knows two other children already live. Finally, he's met a shadow child like himself. Jen is willing to risk everything to come out of the shadows—does Luke dare to become involved in her dangerous plan? Can he afford not to?
"Readers will be captivated by Luke's predicament and his reactions to it." (School Library Journal)
"[The] unsettling, thought-provoking premise should...keep readers hooked." (Publishers Weekly)

Among the hidden is set in a political time when resources are supposedly so low that families are only allowed two children. Inevitably a race of hidden children develops.
The story is based around a third child who knows he is different but it only the building of new houses at the back of his house that forces his family to hide him. hidden in his attic room he watches the comings and goings of the new families until one day he spots something at one of the houses.
A must buy for any confident upper primary reader, Haddix books are great, check out running out of time.
The book wasn`t really as good as I thought it was, the end was depressing and there was to much talking about laws and such.
I still liked the book; it was interesting and I`m looking forward to reading the next one.
As an aside, the "new" copy of this book that was sent had yellowed pages and looked about 10 years old. Disappointing.
