Wow. The Shadow Children books were introduced to me by a teacher. I wasn’t so sure that I would like them, and then I got halfway into Among the Hidden. I couldn’t put it down!!

It’s about a futuristic community that recently suffered of famines. They made up a law that says parents are only aloud two children, and any third child, or shadow child, found by the Population Police will be killed, along with anyone associated with them. So, obviously, that’s something you keep secret.

The seven books follow different characters, who all connect somewhere along the way. Luke, Nina, Percy, Matthias, Trey and Jen (am I missing any? I haven’t read the books in a while. If so, please tell me.) are all third children. Most of them have absolutely no idea who the next one is, but they all have something in common: they live every day on the border of life and death.

The books, Among the Hidden, Among the Imposters, Among the Betrayed, Among the Barons, Among the Enemy, and Among the Free are GREAT!!!! They are page- turners full of cliffhangers, and the Science Fiction genre will really bring readers in. I don’t know anyone who’s read them and didn’t like them!!!!


The author's comments:
I hope you guys read the books, no matter how young thay may seem. If you do like them (which I'm almost positive you will), go to the author's website at www.haddixbooks.com

okay dudes,i know one of you pressed the "report abuse" button to KaThywuf's response saying her name, and I just wanted to say that was unnecisary. Please don't do it again, I like to have all my comments stay where they were posted.

I'd love to be able to draw like that. I'm doing a twilight project for school, and I have to draw all 3 characters. I've tried, but it's hpoeless.

Hey, I didn't know you draw! I saw your werewolf picture and commented on it. That's REALLY good! I can't draw. Only girls, horses, and rabbits. Did u know I have 8? We just got done feeding them like 2 seconds ago.

Sorry, I don't! I don't think my parents would let me, either. I guess we'll just have to talk on here for now!
