Some positives of this book are, that it has tons of suspense, it will also make you want to read more and more to see what happens. That means you won't have trouble reading it and it wont bore you. This book is about how third children are illegal in the U.S and the third children that are in exile are trying to change that. The main characters in this novel are Trey, Nina, Lee, Jen, Mark, Luke, Matt, John, Mr. Talbot, Mrs. Talbot, and Joe. This book takes place in the united states in a time that has never happened before and hopefully will not happen in the future where third children are not allowed. This is an example of a little of the dialogue:
Mrs. Talbot: "you're just a little boy, aren't you?"
Mrs. Talbot: "all the thirds-so naïve. So sheltered. Don't you know? The only way they're going to release George is in a coffin."
Trey: "no they aren't."
Trey: "you can rescue him. I'll-I'll help."
This book also has some negatives. One is that it can be confusing on where and what's happening. Another reason is that it has some hard vocabulary that can get you mixed up. The last reason is that there are a lot of scenes and settings in this novel, so you can get confused. The writing style of Margaret Peterson Haddix was with good length sentences that varied. The author also used third person narration for the novel.
I would recommend this novel to anyone who likes suspense, mystery, or action novels. This is because this novel has a lot of all of that. The novel would be enjoyable to pretty much all readers but I am just recommending it to some. If you have read this book/think you'll like it, then I would also recommend all the other books in this series, such as Among the Hidden, Among the Imposters, Among the Free, etc. this is my review of the novel, Among the Brave.

When I first read the summary of this book I thought that sounds so much like Shade's Children by Garth Nix. I bought the book and read it to find just like I had though that It basically is Shade's Children. I mean come on I hate when people copy ideas from other books . Can't you think of any thing your self?Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
