I read a book called Among The Hidden, written by Margaret Peterson Haddix. This book is a really good book. The main charitors are Jen and Luke. The government made a law that you can only have 2 children and you were not allowed to have a third or more children because the people are afraid they will run out of food. So, Luke is a third child and he already has two brothers named Mathew and Mark. His mom even wanted another son named John (get it, Mathew, Mark, Luke, and John. The books of the Bible) But after she had heard the food was scarce and you could not have a third child she got worried and already had been hiding Luke, because she did not get to have John. Luke used to get to play in their woods but the government needed their woods for some rich families named Barons. But now he can not. All of a sudden in the book this guy that’s working to build the Barons house said, “Do you have any air-conditioning?” And Luke’s dad said, “No do you think we are rich?” And the guy went away. After that Luke’s dad started hiding him more than usual. If you want to know more, you will have to read ALL the series! By the way, sorry for leaving you hanging!
