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.

Great Read for Middle School Students

My 6th grade students love the storyline as well as the pace of the reader/story.

Don't buy it

This is so disappointing! The chapters don' match up to the time listed, it jumps to random chapters when trying to start from a previous listening session, just to mention a couple of issues. I have no idea where Chapter 3 is..... I bought this because the Youtube channel I used in the past(for free!) disappeared. I teach 7th grade remedial Reading and my students have always loved this book! I have no idea what I am going to do because the bookmarks don't match when I try them and when I try to click on the beginning of the chapter, it skips from Chapter One to Chapter Four and then to Chapter Nine! Crazzzzy. I don't have time for this frustration!

what an amazing listen

Among the Hidden by Margaret Patterson Haddix was always a great book now to listen to it is even better. To anyone in need of a great series, this is the place to start. I read the books when I was in middle School and now to listen to it is an amazing opportunity.

good story, sets up for the series

I got this because I am one of my school's Battle of the Books coaches, and it is on the list. the story is great, but as someone else pointed out, the chapters do not line up with the recording. still worth the read!

Great for young adults

I teach ELA to 7th graders. I use the audio as we read. the students love this story. The download, however, wasn't great. There are parts of the story that just stop. I had to read out loud where the audio stopped.
