About the Novel:
Among the Hidden focuses on the dystopian world of Luke Garner, where having more than two children is illegal. Unfortunately for Luke, he’s the youngest of three brothers. Therefore, he must stay hidden to avoid detection from the US government. At some point in the past, the US government enacted a Population Law to help fight against food shortages. However, some believe that this is simply the government’s way of controlling its citizens. One of these people is Luke’s neighbor, who’s also a third child. Jen comes from a well-off family. She has access to the Internet and books, something Luke does not. Jen explains to Luke that she wants to start a revolution. She’s in communication with other third children, and is organizing a rally to be held outside the Whitehouse. When things go wrong, Luke finds himself in danger and must make a choice: risk being found, or assume a new identity and leave his home.
