Among the Hidden is the first installment in the popular Shadow Children series by Margaret Peterson Haddix. This bestselling educational title combines science fiction and compelling characters to create an edge-of-your-seat, gripping adventure that will keep readers hooked.
Luke is one of the Shadow Children. Being one of the Shadow Children means Luke doesn’t have much of a life at all. Luke has to live in the shadows because he is his parents’ third child. In the world Luke lives in, families are only allowed to have two children at most. This rule is strictly enforced by the Population Police, who are so thorough about keeping families small that Luke has to be isolated within his family’s home. This means Luke can’t go to school, make friends or experience any of life’s other joys.
Yet even in isolation Luke finds himself pulled out of the shadows by another shadow child, Jen. By chance Luke sees Jen’s face in a neighboring house and recognizes that she is just like him. Only difference is, Jen has a plan to leave her life of isolation behind. Now it’s up to Luke to decide if he wants to join her in this dangerous quest.
