    "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.

    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.

    "Great story for kids!"

    I teach 6th grade and used this in my language arts class. My kids loved the story and immediately wanted to read the rest of the series. It is a great book to discuss current events (China's one child policy) and inspires students to read other stories.

    Great story. Simple quick read for adults. Great novels for middle school!
