My Book Review on 7 of My Favorite Books
Writing a book review for The Shadow Children Series by Margaret Haddix is something I have wanted to do for a long time. I read this series of seven books last year and it is still one of my favorite stories.
The shadow children is sort of a sic-fi, futuristic adventure. It is a little like the Hunger Games books but more for tweens and teens. My book review gives these books and author the highest possible rating because I really loved the series. Here is a little glimpse into the story line of the books, I promise I am not giving anything away.
Luke and Jen live in a society that is ruled by an evil dictator. Their living conditions are hard and they live in poverty. The government made a law that families are only allowed to have 2 children because they didn’t have enough food in their country. Population police patrol the country to make sure there are no 3rd children. If they find a 3rd child they are imprisoned or murdered. Jen and Luke set up a 3rd child rally to change their country for the better but terrible events unravel at the rally and their lives are changed forever.
I can’t tell you any more than that because I don’t want to spoil the story. What I do want you to know is the books are all filled with adventure that keep you on the edge of your seat. You will like Luke and Jen and their friends but you will hate the population police. Most of all, you will love this series of books called the Shadow children by Margaret Peterson Haddix.
