Customer Review

Reviewed in the United States on July 1, 2013
My kids voted this the best in the series but with that said you would really want to start with book 1 as so much builds upon each other. One thing that Margaret Peterson Haddix is excellent at presenting topics and situations that really get kids thinking. Her books are well written and provide an excellent springboard for classroom or small group discussions not just about the book but the subject matter. With this book as with the whole series, the topic was population control. The danger of being found out is still very much there and this book just sucks you in and does not let you go. I love that my kids were hooked with the first book in the series and there were more equally interesting and enjoyable books. To me this (along with her other books) is a must have book for all classroom libraries.
