In Among The Hidden, a twelve year old boy has to hide in his attic because he is not even supposed to exist. In his country, it is a law to have only two children. However, he is a third child. He finally meets a girl one day who is also a third child. She plans a rally at the president’s house in a few months. When that night finally comes, the girl sneakes into the boy’s house and asks one last time if he wants to come. He does not, so he replies with “no” and worries the rest of the night about the other third child. What is going to happen? Will third children finally become legal? It is a truly mysterious book that takes you on a dangerous mission to try to make third children legal.
