AMONG THE HIDDEN: SHADOW CHILDREN
This month’s Tween Book Club pic is Among the Hidden: Shadow Children by Margaret Peterson Haddix. I’m fangirling all over Haddix because she writes books for kids that make them THINK!
Check out my video review:
If you haven’t read it, put it on your TBR list. You’ll be hooked!

PLOT: 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?
I KNOW, RIGHT?? Have you read it? What about any other books from Peterson?
