    "Loved it!"

    I am actually writing this for my son who read this book in fifth grade. He LOVED it! A lot of the material is things he had really never thought about and it led to some very interestng family conversations about the China one-child policy, etc.

    "Good book"

    One of my friends suggested this book as a class read aloud, so I listened. It is a good book but the subject matter is too mature for younger children ( I teacher 4th grade gifted). Perhaps a 6th grade or other upper grade teacher may find it useful. Lots of connects can be made to the holocaust and activism.

    "Great book now and then."

    I read this book once ago as it was an assigned book in middle school loved it then didn't quite live up to my memory of when I first read it but what ever does? Just a shame the rest of the series isn't in audiobook form. I was hoping to go through the whole series as I believe I only made it as far as the second book when I was first exposed to this series. Will likely buy it on Amazon so I guess they get my money either way aha. Narrator was alright his 'alternate' voices for Jen or Luke's mother were at times laughable but that didn't take me away from the story too much.

    "Review Among the Hidden"

    This was a very well written book but also very sad. I would not recommend this book to the faint hearted because while you grow to like some of the characters they end up parsing and leaving you heart broken.

    Story
    "Great Book, but the Ending??"
    If you could sum up Among the Hidden in three words, what would they be?

    Futurestic, Sad, Hopeful


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Among the Hidden?

    The friendship that develops between Jen and Luke...the Shawdow Children.


    What about Steven Boyer’s performance did you like?

    How he went out on limb to help and protect his daughter, that wasn't even his biological daughter and to fight the Government. Then he gave Luke the chance at an actual life.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Luke met Jen's Dad and they grieved over their loss. Jen's Dad gave Luke the life he would have never been able to have unless he had met Jen and listened to her wisdom.
