The book I read is Among the hidden wich is wrote by Margaret Peterson Haddix. This book was published by Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing in 1998. It is a science-fiction book wich has about 150 pages. My first impression of this book is that it is a sad story because the cover page is made up by cool tone. The story happens in the future which starts with Luke’s birthday in Luke’s home. With a new housing development replacing the woods next to his family’s farm, he is no longer allowed to go outside. There is a law about each family can only have tow children. Luke has lived his entire life in hiding because he is a shadow child, a third child forbidden by the population police. Luke admires his brothers so much because they can go to school and play with friends out side.This setting makes me feeling mysterious and depressive. Until one day, he find out there is an other shadow child in his neighbour’s family. She is Jen, the creator of a chat room for shadow children chatting with each other. They become friends soon after they meet. Jen organizes a rally wich hundreds of shadow children are going to protest the government’s population law, but Luck does not participate in the rally that day because of fear. After the rally day, Luck can not contact with Jen for a week. He is so anxious that he breaks in jen’s house. He meets Jen’s dad in the house who tells him a appealing news ---- Jen and other shadow children were killed by population police. Then, Jen’s dad helps Luck escaping from population police’ chase. Finally, they achieve to make a fake I.D for Luck. On this story, the main conflict is person versus society. All the shadow children are illegal, but they never stop the struggle for freedom.
The two main character for the story are Luck and Jen. Luck is a small-bone and soft looking
