Personal ResponseI really like this book This book has a great story line and one of the main reasons has to be the constant suspense The author does a great job of adding a sense of urgency and intensity into the character s actions I also like how I am able to witness the growth the main character goes through throughout the book.PlotThe rebellion against the Population Police has hit a snag The leader of the rebellion and some of its important members have been arrested by the Population Poli [...]
After reviewing this book on my blog I decided to re read it because it s been a while It was as good as I remembered Trey is a likable hero because he does courageous things despite his own fear If you re willing to look for them, the book also has some good themes about doing the right thing despite potentially bad consequences, the sanctity of human life, courage, friendship, etc This book is my favorite in the series and can be read alone, but I d recommend reading the stories in order.
Among the Brave is the fifth installment in the Shadow Children series In this book it is all about how Trey, as a third child, went and fought against all odds He was forced to put his fear aside in order to save his friends.

Personal Response You have to read the rest of the books in the series It s easy to read and that s a good thing for weak readers The story line is getting really good, so can t wait until i m done reading them Hopefully they can overrule the government and make kids legal again.Plot Among The Brave is about four young kids trying to plan an escape to get Luke Gardner out of the population police jail before the police try to kill him The main character s friend Luke has been taken prisoner by t [...]
I have read 6 out of the 7 books in the Shadow Children series, and except for the first book, this was my favorite so far In this book Trey, one of the boys Lee mentored at the school, is the protagonist and hero ,something he never would have thought himself capable of As a 3rd child, Trey grew up hiding in the city with his 2 friends until they got caught by the population police and held in prison, until they could be brought to Lee s school by Jen s father Trey looks up to Lee and admires h [...]
Again, I m going to have to give a book in this series a 3.5 because I can t bring myself to give it 4 stars Bummer This is book 5 in the series, and it is Trey s story after he is dropped at Mr Talbot s house in the end of Barons He thinks he s there to get help from Mr Talbot while his friends wait in the car, but when Population Police tear out of the garage with a handcuffed Talbot, and Nina and the others speed away from the house, he s left alone, confused, and scared He learns that the pr [...]
Personal response I liked this book a lot because of the ongoing story line throughout this series This story kept me very interested through the whole entire book The way the author writes is very intriguing and keeps me interested Plot Trey was a very scared third child for along time He was scared to even see other people when he was first introduced Trey went from being that scared to being stranded on the Talbot s porch looking for answers Trey became one of the bravest characters in the bo [...]

The book Among the Brave by Margaret Peterson Haddix interest me a lot with their unpredictable events that happen to the main character In page 31, I figured out that Trey s friend was an illegal children.Then he was followed by population polices, because his parents are captured by the police He was helped by his friends named Mark, which helped him get to Mr Talbot to help them.He gets help from his friends to save his other friend Luke I really loved this book, how the children in this book [...]
This is probably my favorite book in the series The protagonist is now Trey Jackson which annoys many of my students because they just want to know what is going on with Luke However, Haddix continues to develop all of her characters and this portion of the story is Trey s as he and Luke s brother, Mark, set out to rescue Luke Lacking self confidence, Trey never felt he was brave or worthy until fate steps in and makes him do things he never thought possible This novel features action than any [...]

A very different book, a wholly outdoor adventure at last Very surprising that things fell into place that easily in the end You would think the leader of the Liber group, or whatever they call themselves, would be better guarded But this sets the stage for the final battle, and another switch over from Luke to Trey opens up the door for further self discovery.
The reason I love rhis book is because there isn t one page that you aren t scared for the character s life I love the characters How they have all been so traumatized and still can be so brave The main character in this book is Trey, who in this book series is considered to be the weakling and turns out to be a real hero He saved other people from death even though he was afraid.
Although I felt the book started slow with a character I had a hard time connecting with in early books, it only took a couple chapters to hook me with the story line and to develop a new side to a familiar character I felt like I grew and changed with the characters and truly believe that this story might be a metaphor for the way that many people feel in their lives today.
Among the Brave was an amazing continual to the Shadow Children Series It s cool to see Peterson change perspectives throughout the series This time, it was from the point of view of Trey, the World s Biggest Coward I would definitely recommend this book to a friend.
This was the first book I read from the Shadow Children series It is set up so it doesn t really matter whether or not you have read the previous ones So if you want to read this one, or most likely any of the others, you should do it and not worry about not knowing background info.
a great book
IT WAS AMAZING I WOULD RECOMMEND IT TOTALLY
More action packed then the last book Now I am really curious to how they free themselves Next book here we go.
