    This series is Amazing! I know it's pretty easy reading, but if you aren't too embarassed to settle for the medium font size i can promise you--you won't regret it. it set in a different time, neither in the past, nor in the future, just a different time. A time and place where food famine has struck a country and has made it desprate; so desprate that it bans couples from having more than two kids. the main character, Luke, is a third child, and he must hide from the outside, cause the penalty This series is Amazing! I know it's pretty easy reading, but if you aren't too embarassed to settle for the medium font size i can promise you--you won't regret it. it set in a different time, neither in the past, nor in the future, just a different time. A time and place where food famine has struck a country and has made it desprate; so desprate that it bans couples from having more than two kids. the main character, Luke, is a third child, and he must hide from the outside, cause the penalty for disobeying is death on the spot. He thinks he all alone...until he finds Jen, a third like him. The first book ends sad, but sets the tone and pace for the rest of the series. Not every book is told by him - just 4 of the 7 - and you get to see the story from three other characters who play important roles. Through out the series, you get to see how the characters look up to Luke and how each book winds it's way into the other. Luke is seen as a hero to all the thirds, but in the last book you get to see how he feels about himself, and how he under-estimates his influence. i love this series just because how real they seem. i love the idea that kids can change the way of a nation and the empowerment you get from reading the stories. i totally recommend these books for everyone! - @

    These books were very interesting. I really did read the whole series too. They are a very fast read and the kids like them. It doesn't ever say where or what year this story takes place, but you assume the future. There were parts (Among the Barons) that actualy got to me because I pictured the thoughts of a terrorist, or how he would rationalize anyway. Other parts (Among the free and before) where it reminded me of the Nazi regime. It definatly gives you an idea of what our country to do if G These books were very interesting.

Zach loved the first book but not the next 2 so much. That is where he stopped. It does get long, but leaves enough cliff hangers to keep you interested. It's such a fast read, you can read one book a day.

    Read in 5th grade, it has to be one of my all time favorite series for YA. If you're a Haddix fan, it's impossible not to fall in love the Shadow Childern Series, or as I referred to them, "The among the books". All seven novels are full of suspence and will leave you hanging wanting to read more. Read in 5th grade, it has to be one of my all time favorite series for YA.

    This is one of my favorite series! I finished all books in a two week span. Full of excitement and suspense, this series explores what it would be like to live in a world where each family was only allowed to have two children. What happens though if there's more? What if the population police don't know about them? What kind of quality to life would there be? Find out in this amazing series! This is one of my favorite series!

    First of all, having read the entire series of this young adult phenomenon, I could simply not find it in my soul to seperate them in the reviews. Trust me when I say you will find it impossible to seperate one from the other once you have begun. The good news, they are fast reads so it will not consume too much of your time to read the entire thing from start to finish. How many books are we truly talking about, anyway? Let me introduce you to your new favorite young adult series: Among the Hid First of all, having read the entire series of this young adult phenomenon, I could simply not find it in my soul to seperate them in the reviews. Trust me when I say you will find it impossible to seperate one from the other once you have begun. The good news, they are fast reads so it will not consume too much of your time to read the entire thing from start to finish. How many books are we truly talking about, anyway? Let me introduce you to your new favorite young adult series: Among the Hidden Among the Imposters Among the Betrayed Among the Barons Among the Brave Among the Enemy Among the Free This series fell into my hands in pieces. First, the original book was offered by Scholastic for only $1 a few years back. I purchased 8 copies of the book, always eager to find good deals on books and always trusting Scholastic's judgement. The book was, in a word, remarkable. The idea behind this story is that in a country who has similarities to our own, after a food shortage, the government declares it illegal for a family to have more than two children. The story follows Luke, a third child born to a quiet farming family, who doesn't understand the magnitude of his very existence. I never knew the remaining six books in the series existed. You see, the first book ends in such a way that you almost imagine what may happen later. I was unaware that Ms. Haddix had made it unnecessary for me to imagine. However, I assigned the book that first year it hit my shelves to a group of 8 boys who declared they "hated reading". My philosophy is that all children who don't like to read simply haven't found that book yet. It's out there, I often tell my class, waiting to grab your attention and hook you on reading, you just have to be willing to continue searching. It is always my goal to have each and every student in my class be able to answer the question "what is your favorite book?" by the end of the year. I'm proud to say 5 of those 8 listed "Among the Hidden" when asked that question. In other words, it was a hit. I continued to use it year-after-year. Fast forward to this year. Another young almost-reader struggling to find his book finds it again in Among the Hidden. His mother, grateful, promptly purchased a classroom set of all 7 books for my shelf. I was shocked, remember, I didn't know they existed. Hence how I came to read the entire series from start to finish and sit here writing this (incredibly wordy, my apologies) review. This is a rare series. Once I hit the 3rd book I noticed something odd was happening, each of these books was better than the last. That is not a typo, although those of you familiar with most series will understand how rare that truly is. The books simply kept getting more intense, more agressive, and more poignant as they moved toward a strong stand against government corruption and the idea that power corrupts. I was almost afraid to begin "Among the Free". Although the name implies it will end well for Luke and his friends, I was terrified with how it would be accomplished. The cover simply stated "fans of the series will not be dissapointed" and I cannot agree more. Haddix did not fall into the typical series endings. She chose to end on a beautiful note, one that would probably not work for any other series. Instead of ending her series with a happily-ever-after, Haddix stretched out infinite possibility and imagination. You'll have to read the series to see why this is effective. All in all, I'm so very grateful that I have this amazing series in my classroom. There is a waiting list 4 preteens deep to check them out of my classroom shelves, and they are being returned to rave reviews. As a class we highly agree this series deserved 5 huge stars, and the kids claim I also need to include a tear for at least one spot in the series where "even you must have almost cried". Highly recommended from our classroom to yours!

Reading these books almost felt like I WAS Luke, Trey, Matthias, or Nina, or that I had found their diary and was reading exactly how they felt in that moment. Imagining this was a real time where third children were not allowed to exist makes me feel compassion for the children. Among the Betrayed was the first book that changed the point of view from Luke to Nina, and Among the Brave changed it to Trey’s point of view. Among the enemy was the point of view of Matthias, This series was amazing.

I really liked how this series ended, with the bad guys escaping, but Shadow Children were finally free.

    This book series made me feel scared and compassionate because I feel bad for him. It must have been scary having to hide from everyone. I liked the suspense and thrilling nature of the series. The action and suspense made me keep reading these books and I could not put them down. It must have been hard not having someone to trust and turn too.

    The entire series is written incredibly. Inserting just enough detail to set the mood and not overdoing it. This book is perfect for children in grades 5-8, as the vocabulary is simple and the story is easy to follow and understand. I love how the entire plot of the story seems like it has a sense of being possible.

    These books were my childhood and I loved them. The first one was the very first book that ever made me cry, and realize the power that books, literature, words have. I will always be grateful for this powerful series.

    This series is so good! I love the different characters and all the different things they go through to grow up. Each book shows how one of the characters over comes their fear.
