Online Book Clubs for Jessamine County Teens

Among_the_HiddenWelcome to Week 3 of 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 3: Chapters 13-18

1. 4. Why was Luke surprised when he saw the inside of the Sports Family’s house?

2. Why was Jen able to move around more freely than Luke and have a greater knowledge of the world?

3. Think about the phrase Jen so casually uses to describe Luke when she checked him out on the computer, “you don’t exist.” Describe how that probably made him feel.

4. How is the way Luke’s parents deal with his hiding different from the way Jen’s parents deal with her hiding?

5. The Internet made it possible for Jen and Luke to connect with other hidden children. It helped them build a community of peers. Do you use the Internet to connect with people who share interests with you?

    Luke was surprised because he wasn’t a baron and his parents didn’t have a lot of money

    1. He was not used to being into a big and nice house with all kinds of furniture and expensive things. Especially because Luke doesn’t have anything like that in his house.

    2. Luke is not able to move as much as Jen because Jen’s parents bribe people easily.

    1. Luke was suprised because the furniture is so much better than his. In the book it says that jen’s fridge is bigger than his whole kitchen.

    No, I do not use the internet to communicate with people I do not know and I share interests with. Sharing personal information is not a good thing to do.

    Jen is able to move around more freely than Luke and have a greater knowledge of the world because her mom has a shoppers pass for her and her car is hollowed out.
