    2. you really have to read the first shadow children book to get this one. it follows through where Luke gets a new fake identity. He becomes lee grant, a former boy who died in a ski accident.Luke goes through the school trying to blend in,as he was told. if you want more information read the booke writer really takes a whole paragraph to explains Lukes feelings which i like. it gives you a better understanding of how he truly feels.This book is not predictable like some others. I had no idea abou [...]

    3. The Good: This dystopian, fast-paced story made for a good quick read. You have to read the previous book to get it, but, it's worth it!The Bad: As someone who was harassed throughout my school years, the bullying scenes were hard to read.Conclusion: Despite the fact that some moments in this book triggered some bad memories, I still enjoyed it. I'm glad I have the next two in the series on hand!

    4. Schattenkinder ist eine Dystopie-Reihe für jüngere Jugendliche, die sich in 6 Bücher aufteilt. In dieser Welt kam es aufgrund von Überbevölkerung zu einer weltweiten Hungersnot und die Menschheit musste ums Überleben kämpfen. In diesem Zuge beschloss die Regierung, dass jede Familie maximal zwei Kinder haben dürfe. Aber es gibt auch Familien mit einem dritten und somit verbotenen Kind. Diese Schattenkinder werden versteckt und von der Regierung gejagt. Luke ist eines dieser Kinder und wi [...]

    5. Among the Imposters is the second book in The Shadow Children series. The book was alright. It would've been better, I think, if it was longer. The book is under 200 pages long, and half of that doesn't really matter to the point of the book I don't think. I wish that Haddix would have included more detail to the book. One something really big happens in the book, such as Luke/Lee meeting the group of other shadow children in the woods, I think the details are skipped over. It only gives the rea [...]

    6. Luke, also known as Lee Grant, and Jen's dad moved away. Lee Grant goes to this Hendricks Boys School and he's afraid that he's going to blow off his identity. He gets bullied all the time, but all he wants to do is to fit in. He starts to hang out with a group of friends, but he's not sure if he could trust any of them. Jason was one of the people he hangs out with. Later on, Lee Grant found out that Jason works with the Population Police. This book was good, you'll get it if you had already re [...]

    7. It was a very good book with many twists and turns. I would recommend it to everyone in the galaxy if I could!! VERY ambiguous story! I love it because it is super duper coooooooooooooool :) ! Stay pragmatic!~Daniel

    8. This book is okay, it's really not that intense as the first book. But I read it any way I'm not gonna read the whole series because I'm focusing on the new series I'm reading, so yeah. This book is about an illegal third child name Luke Garner and Jen's Dad is trying to help him and he goes to this school for boys and he is really scared of blowing his cover of being an illegal third child.I think this book is okay because I like how Luke finally experienced the world. The first book is more in [...]

    9. Among The Imposters- Post 1/4 Luke Garner masked himself for the sake of his family, he masked himself from society. In a crumbling world, the third child in any family is meant to be cast away due to a government that can't sustain the population. His whole life has been spent running and hiding from the Population Police, and now in "Among The Impostors" by Margaret Paterson Haddix, he takes the importance of his family to full lengths by changing his name. Change in Luke's life came when he w [...]

    10. I thought the book was great because they finally got a secret I.D. and found out there were more shadow children at the school.

    11. "Among the Hidden" is a book from the Shadow Children series of books by Margaret Peterson Haddix. It has lots of unexpected twists in the plot and it keeps readers hooked. Luke Garner is an illegal third child who lives in a time where parents are allowed only two children due to famines. After receiving help from Jen Talbot's father, George Talbot, Luke is now going to Hendricks School for boys. Because he is an illegal third child, Luke gets a fake I.D. and is posing as Lee Grant, a boy from [...]

    12. B.R#3 Among The Impostors is a spectacular sequel to Among The Hidden. It is by Margaret Peterson Haddix. There are many different characters.There is Luke, Mr. Talbot, Jackal boy, and Mr. Dirk. They each play a key role in the book. They all help Luke along the way through Hendricks School for Boys. They made Luke realize a way to help shadow children everywhere.“When I came out of hiding I told my parents that I wanted to help other third children. Only, I didn't know how. But now I do.” T [...]

    13. Luke no longer living with his family, just having his best friend, and only friend shot by the Population Police. Luke doesn't know what to do in his new life at Hendrick's school. The only thing that Luke can hope for is the note Mr.Talbot left him. Luke kept waiting for the perfect time to look at the note. Until one day Luke spots a open door, and quickly bolts outside to look at the note. But all the help he got was a few two words "Blend in". Luke was furious at Mr.Talbot, because now Luke [...]

    14. Second of seven in 'The Shadow Children Sequence.' It really helps to have read the first, because this one takes right off at full speed from 'Among the Hidden,' with little background exposition. That increased the excitement level for me, and is an effective way to lure in series fans. And the idea is just great--a boarding school without windows with a nearly autonomous student population (the teachers throw out meaningless demerits and don't seem to take attendance). Most of those students [...]

    15. This series first captured my interest when I was thirteen. Six years later I still occasionally return to them as comfort reads. It's rare to find books that were age appropriate as a tween an early teen that remain interesting years later.Among the Impostors follows twelve year old Luke Garner, an illegal third child. After his only friend, another third child, dies, Luke is separated from his family and taken to hide in a boys school. There he meets other third childrenbut he's not sure all o [...]

    16. I hate to dis the author but the whole scared little hiding Luke is getting kind of old. I think that like the first book in the shadow children series, there is to little action.

    17. Yes, Luke now has his fake ID that will allow him a modicum of safety as he ventures out into the world for virtually the first time in his life. Mr. Talbot obtained the necessary papers for him and as Luke says good-bye to his family, he is taken to the Hendricks School for Boys. Never having been outside before, let alone meeting new people, Luke is frightened and apprehensive. At Hendricks, odd things happen. The other students are either cruel or clueless. The huge, brick building has no win [...]

    18. Among the Imposters is a book about a boy named Luke/Lee Grant who is a third child. You're not allowed to have third children where he lives. Luke is scared throughout the whole book. I never wanted to put this book down, it was a good book from the first page on.

    19. Okay, I'm a little bit hooked! This certainly isn't the best series I've ever read, but I definitely need to find out what happens! RTC.

    20. Personal Response: You have to read the 1st book to get any of the books in the series. It's easy to read and that's a good thing for weak readers. The story line is getting really good and i heard that the later books are really good, so can't wait until i'm done reading them.Plot: Mr. Talbot works for the government but thinks the population police is a stupid thing. So Mr.Talbot helps out Luke's family and get's him a fake id. The name of the fake id was Mr.Talbot's son(Lee Grant) who was kil [...]

    21. *Spoiler alert* Do you like books that keep you on the edge of your seat? Well, if you so this is the book for you. This book is realistic fiction because the things that happen in this book could happen in real life. I think this book is better than the first book (Among the Hidden) because this book seems more suspicious and interesting.The setting takes place in Hendricks's School for boys, which is a windowless building with cruel classmates and mean teachers. Luke wanted to be just like Jen [...]

    22. Personal Response: I enjoyed this book greatly and think that this is one of the best series I have ever read in my life. I read the first book of the series as well and the craziness only continued After Luke received a fake ID from Jen’s dad who was Mr. Talbot and started school at Hendricks School for Boys. Things only got more difficult after he started at Hendricks. For instance, Luke read the note Mr. Talbot had given him, hoping the note would be more helpful. He was disappointed becaus [...]

    23. Luke Garner is a third child(shadow child). He is illegal because the government said that they do not have the food to feed more than two kids per family. Luke gets a fake ID that states his name is Lee Grant. He moves to a school called Hendricks school for boys. He meets a kid that he calls jackal boy. Jackal boy is very mean to him. One day he sees a door open he goes outside were he should not be. Then he has the idea to grow a garden and he goes outside every day. One day the door shuts an [...]

    24. Personal Response: I enjoyed this book greatly and think that this is one of the best series I have ever read. I enjoyed reading it and read at least 20 pages a day. I really am a fan of the mystery in life or death situations. It holds my attention a lot better than most books.Plot:This book was a very interesting read. It started with Luke in hiding. It then continues with Luke going to Hendricks School for Boys with the fake name Lee Grant. Then for better or worse Luke met Jason who claimed [...]

    25. I read the book, “Among The Impostors” by Margaret Peterson Haddix. The book was very interesting because to me I think it's wrong that families can’t have more than two children. If they have more than two children, the third child must die. I think it's cool that someone takes the fact that some kids aren’t legal and gives them fake identity, so they can go to school. This book was kind of confusing for me, because I did not understand what was going on right away in the book.The main [...]

    26. "Among the Impostors" is the second book in this series. This book is about a boy named Luke. Luke is an illegal third child. He got a fake ID and was given a new name so he could live like normal children do. Luke was send off to Hendricks school for boys to learn everything he has missed. One day, while at school, he sees an open door and decides to go outside. While outside Luke decided to build a garden. He feels like he does not fit in anywhere, so building this garden makes him feel import [...]

    27. I read “Among the Impostors” by Margaret Peterson Haddix. This book is a part of the shadow children sequence. After reading the first book in the sequence, I decided I wanted to keep reading to know what was going to happen to Luke. I am so happy that I decided to read this book because it was really good! The book is written in third person limited point of view of the main character, Luke. Luke finally figures out how to navigate around school even though he doesn't know what any of his c [...]
