Online Book Clubs for Jessamine County Teens

Among_the_HiddenWelcome to the Online Teen Book Club for Among the Hidden by author Margaret Peterson Haddix. This is the first book in the Shadow Children series, which is made up of seven books. Check in each week and answer the questions listed under that week.  When you answer a question, put the number of the question you are answering in your post. Don’t forget to respond to someone else’s post, so you can have fun talking about the book!

Week 1: Chapters 1-6

1. The author doesn’t specify the setting for Among the Hidden. Where do you think it takes place? When do you think it takes place?

2. Why do you think pets are not allowed anymore?

3. How can you tell Mrs. Garner feels bad about Luke being stuck inside all day?

4. Why did the Garner’s tax bill go up so much?

5. What would you do all day if you had to be the hidden child? Remember you can’t use anything that makes a noise. You can’t be outside or go in front of an uncovered window.

    If I was a hidden child I would be stuck in a attic and be there forever, to keep me busy I would read a book, write letters, and enjoy my food I get. :/

    JasmineTheBookQueen I think pets are not allowed because the owners would not be taking care of the pets and would never have time for them, the pets would not get affection and would run away.
