Among the Hidden - Margaret Peterson Haddix
"I don't know what I was expecting, but it wasn't this" . . . I say as I turned every flippin' page!

This little novel has surprising power. It deals with a totalitarian government, and though this theme is not uncommon (ESPECIALLY in the YA books of today--by god it's a super fad), the way it's treated in this novel is very original. It's not shoved into your face or made the main theme of the novel. Instead, Luke is the focus (as he well should be!).

I can't wait to get my hands on the second . . . and I can't believe it's taken me this long to start reading these books.
