    I loved this book I had a hard time putting it down my favorite part was when He met Jen for the first time my least favorite part was when Luke found out that Jen and all the members of the rally died.

    I have really liked reading this book. It has reminded me when I had a dream aboout the woods. This has been a great adventures book to read. I really want to know if Luke will find another shadow chiled like him and Jen. I am really happy that my teacher decided to do book clubs.

    Well i thought the book was going to be stupid but its actually pretty good. My favorite part of the book is prob when jens dad finds Luke later on in the book.It was really sad when jen died.

  10. Shaylee Finch — October 9, 2012 @ 8:37 pm

    Well the book is really sad when SPOILER ALERT…….. Jen dies. I was like nooooooooo but it happened anyway and i think Jen new that she was going to die and didn’t think that people would show up.:( that Jen died

  11. sophia cole — October 10, 2012 @ 2:23 pm

    i loved the whole book. i loved how they met. its sad that jen died but other than that, i love the ending.

  12. baylee hobbs — October 11, 2012 @ 6:36 pm

    I finished the book.It was so so good.I liked when Luke would go over to Jen’s house and when Luke saw the chat room that they could be able to talk to other kids like them.I also like how Jen cut herself just for Juke so he would not get in caught.That is a good friend.Another part i like is right before Jen went she went to see Luke one last time.And it is so so sad that Jen died just trying to get freedom.And a right to live in the world like everyone else.I don’t think is is right that that her Luke have to hide
    there life and they cant even go out side.

  14. karla arevalo — October 15, 2012 @ 2:14 pm

    i think thay sould let them all go back to there famileys becuse thay are always hiddeing and never get to go back home and thay prodley miss there familey and for some reasson thay can only have 2 kids with them and if thay have more that is alegle stuped

  19. jeff montague — October 22, 2012 @ 3:21 pm

    I really think lukes brothers are whiners.

  20. jeff montague — October 22, 2012 @ 3:23 pm

    I finished the book and i thought it was pretty good but it was a little boring at first.

  21. makenzie Florence — October 22, 2012 @ 4:40 pm

    I really liked the book. It kept me interested. I hate reading and I loved this book. I think it is really cool how Luke finds another illegal girl and the start to hand out. But it us recall sad that she dies.

  22. Richard vasquez — October 24, 2012 @ 7:56 am

    I like the book, I thought it was mysteries because you didnt know what’s going to happen next. I thought that the rule the government made , you cant have more than two kids in you family.
    I felt bad for luke because he didnt really have a life.

  23. Richard vasquez — October 24, 2012 @ 8:04 am

    Once again the book was very good I liked it very much , luke finally figured out that he’s not alone. when he first saw the other kid in the window he thought he amagined a kid being there. also he thought that the next door neighbor kids got home earley from school.

  24. Rheanna — February 10, 2013 @ 7:43 pm

    The book is pretty good so far. It’s kind of sad that Luke has to be hidden in an attic. It was surprising when he looked out the window to find another third child.

  25. Rheanna — February 18, 2013 @ 7:03 pm

    The book is getting more interesting as I’m reading. I liked the part where Luke sneaks out of his house to see Jen. It was funny when she pinned him to the ground.

  26. Kailey Poe — February 19, 2013 @ 1:55 pm

    The book is really good so far. It is so sad that Luke has to be hidden. I liked when he found Jen when she was looking out the window.

  27. Rheanna — February 22, 2013 @ 3:19 pm

    I like this book! I like how Jen can get on the computer while Luke’s parents would freak out if he did. I like Jen a lot, but she’s going to get caught when she’s taking so many risks.

  28. Kiri — February 28, 2013 @ 12:35 pm

    I really love this book! It is making me want to read the other books in this series! It just keeps getting more interesting!(:

  29. Kiri — February 28, 2013 @ 12:37 pm

    I am so curious to find out where Jen is! She left for the rally, and Luke cant get a message from her. What if that was the last time Luke got to see her?1?

  30. Kiri — February 28, 2013 @ 12:39 pm

    I want to continue reading the books in this series! And i want to read other book by this author! I hope they are as interesting as this one!(:

  31. danila — September 25, 2014 @ 12:00 pm
