Among the Hidden book review #iLoveMG

For their recent independent book clubs, I had my fifth graders design their own book cover to accompany the book. I hope you enjoy their interpretations as well as their reviews. 

(Please note that my fifth graders read a wide variety of books across a wide variety of genres, levels, and topics. Do not think that these books are "only" for fifth graders.) Or check out #3rdfor3rd for recommendations from when I taught third grade.

Among the Hidden

Recommended by Jack

Margret Peterson Haddix has outdone herself with this series (Shadow Children series). Among the Hidden is about a boy who has to stay hidden since he is a third child, if he doesn’t the population police will come after him. One day he sees a girl’s face in the window of a house where two children already live, Now he has found another shadow child like himself. The other shadow child, Jen, has a plan to make the third children free, but it is very dangerous and possibly deadly. 

Personally, I think this is a great book since it slowly starts to get more exciting, and then Wham! There's the surprise ending. If you don’t mind a or like a very sad ending, with quite a plot twist, and if you like series, then this is the book for you! I would give this book five out of five stars because of all these things! Now go read this ├╝ber exciting book!
