BOOK REVIEW: Among the Barons (Nicolas A.)

Posted on September 26, 2008. Filed under: Reading | Tags: , , |

I read a book called Among the Barons.  The author of the book is Margaret Peterson Haddix.  It’s the fourth book in the Shadow Children series.  Haddix also wrote a book called Among the Imposters. I liked reading Among the Imposters so I read Among the Barons

The story takes place in present time.  In this world it is the law to only have one or two children.  If you have more, the population police will take and kill your third child.  Third children are called shadow children because they hide and try to stay away from the population police.  One of them, Luke, just might set them free.

My reaction to this book is intense because Luke almost gets caught by the poplulation police and I felt relieved once he didn’t get caught.  I have never read a book with so much excitement.  It made me want to keep reading!

I would definitely recommend this book to other students in Grover Middle School that want a thrilling and exciting story.
