Trey who has been afraid of the outside world for so long has to go on a mission to save his friends from being executed. He goes through grouling situations in heating ducts, dark streets enemy bases, and on the road for so long. Find out more by watching this heart breaking yet tearful and touching series today.

I remeber reading this series for the first time in elementary school and it was one of my favorites. The element of suspense is great and i really liked how the author wrote from treys point of view. You can see him change and assume responsibilty while trying to deal with his fear. I feel like i am truly part of the story. One of the best dystopian series of all time.

head of the Population Police has taken over the government, and executions are common. Trey went to Mr. Talbot's home seeking help to rescue Luke and his other third born friends just as he is taken away in handcuffs. Desperate, he teams up with Luke's older, more reckless brother, Mark, to try to find the others. Mark is caught and Trey enlists in the Population Police, his only hope of freeing him. To escape, the boys make a deal with a resistance member disguised as a guard to rescue a prisoner from another torture camp. The prisoner turns out to be none other than Mr. Talbot, who headed the resistance movement. Mark and Trey are able to rescue their friends, but are unable to help the guard who helped them. The adults are ready to give up but the third born children vow to keep up the fight. 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.

I have to admit, I love the Shadow Children books, so when I got to this one, I was a tad dissappointed. I stopped reading the series about halfway through this book. For me, it was a little slow and hard to understand at times. The rest of the series was written very straight-forward. However, I feel that this book was unique. It has some ups and downs to it. I encourage readers to finish this series and not stop like I did after this book. If you don't understand it, try to ask a friend or someone who has read the book for help like I did.

This book, Among the Brave, is by far the best book in the shadow children series that I have read so far. I found myself many times predicting what I thought would happen and then finding it being completely wrong. For instance when they were driving away from the population police headquarters and mark was still in the cage, they were talking about whether or not they believed the guard and I had thought that after that they would not have gone and picked up the guard's friend or at least attempted to. I also liked the fact that the author made Trey always think of himself as being cowardice, when he was actually extremely brave. The only part of the book that I would have changed is the part where the mob attacked their truck. It seemed a little corny that these people who are starving could flip a car over twice. Although that part was kind of corny, I liked how the author used it as a way to free Mark and yet keep him from his full athletic ability. -Brandon M

Among the Brave is a great book to read. It has mystery, deception, and action. It starts out with Trey, one of the kids from the previous books, with papers he must deliver to Mr. Talbolt but the thing is Trey has Agro-phobia and hates even looking outside let alone being there and when a secret organization called the population police come and take Mr. Talbolt away its up trey to get him back . With the help of Matthew Garner, Luke Garner¿s oldest brother, will they succeed or fail? I liked this book very much it shows that even if you think you can¿t do something if you never give up you can accomplish anything. It had a really solid storyline and really isn¿t confusing at all. It is pretty slow at the beginning but aren¿t all books? I couldn¿t really relate to anyone in the book. But I know how it feels to think you¿ve tried everything but at the last minute you find something that renews your hope. This is book five in a series of seven called the shadow children series. I really suggest you read the first four books before you read this one though because it could get confusing. I think that this book would entertain any age group from seventh grade on up

Trey has always considered himself a coward. Then why is it that it is he who saved Luke’s life when the chandelier fell killing Mr. and Mrs. Grant. The Shadow Children story continues, the story of society in which third children are illegal and are kept hidden. Trey stars in this book, as he makes his way, out-witting the Population Police, in order to save Lee and his friends who have been captured. This is another awesome book in the series, one that shows children that you can still be brave, even though you don’t feel brave. Bravery, after all, is doing the right thing, in spite of the fear. The exciting plot and well-developed characters make this a great story.

Noahchms14 Among the Brave is a mediocre book. It is slow throughout the book you have to wait for action to pick up, and the author drags out most of the book way too far when it can be shortened and be a whole lot better. The locations in this book threw me off because in one chapter they were driving to find out where their friends are being held captive, and in the next we don’t know if they are in trouble or they are safe with all of their friends. The details hurt the book because the author is way too descriptive. For example when a character walks outside the author thought she had to put in every little detail which makes some parts of the book immensely annoying and boring to read I often found myself skipping ahead because there is some much detail. At best Among the Brave is mediocre.
