This is a very exciting book, about a world were a family is only alowed to have two children but most people dont follow the law and have a third child. They call third children shadow children. Shadow children have to hide all their life so the population police dont find them because if population police find a 3rd child in a house hold the family and the 3rd child will be exicuted. The family will be exicuted for hiding and harboring a 3rd child


P.S. dont read this book unless youve read the 1st and 2nd one in the series or this book wont make sense.

    Amazing!

    This story is by far the best one I've read in months! The twist ending makes the story seem pointless. A great book for anyone.

    Among The Betrayed

    If you love adventure, suspense, and mystery then the novel Among the Betrayed, by Margaret Peterson Haddix is for you. The main character is a girl named Nina who is 13 years old and will do anything for her freedom. People called the population police capture her. They put her in a dark and filthy cell, and if she doesn¿t do what they say then they¿re going to kill her. This is how she met Alia, Percy, and Matthias. They became friends and helped her through her journey of survival. They lived in a dark, cold forest were nothing but trees surrounded them. Among the Betrayed is book three in this four part series. Just as in book one they have to try to figure out a way to stop the population police. I enjoyed this book because it made me think and wonder how the future will really be like. It¿s an intriguing book with many twist and turns, I¿m sure many will love it.

    Friend or Foe

    How would a betrayl feel to you? You thought that you knew the person but then something happened. Among the Betrayed by Margret Peterson Haddix, the third in the Shadow Children Series, talks about betrayl vs. trust. Nora, a teenage girl that attended Hotchens school for girls, is suddenly taken by the Population Police. Of course everybody that lives under the reign of the government knows who the population police are. She now has to depend on betraying three kids that are not even at the age of ten. But how could she? She must think of a way to save her and the children. Come to find out, the three kids know more about survival then Nora does. By escaping, she finds out more about surviving and her school days come into play when she needs them most. Margret has done it again with another book to continue the shadow children adventure. With great suspense at the end, it keeps you at the edge of your seat. With a great sudden turn of the plot, it throws the reader into another gear of thinking. Hopefully, she comes out with another book to continue the series.
