    I liked this installment plot better than the last one Luke Garner is pretending to be Lee Grant at a school filled with hidden third children when Lee s younger brother Smits shows up at the school The Grants are a powerful Baron family, but Luke feels pity for Smits and his grief Luke is quickly caught up in a plot to determine why Lee was killed, with a number of competing interests with vastly different agendas.

    This is one of the best series for upper elementary aged kids Each book in the series is full of suspense that causes the kids not to be able to put the book down You would really want to start with book 1 and read them in order as so much builds upon each other Margaret Peterson Haddix is excellent at presenting topics and situations that really get kids thinking Her books are well written and provide an excellent springboard for classroom or small group discussions not just about the book This is one of the best series for upper elementary aged kids Each book in the series is full of suspense that causes the kids not to be able to put the book down You would really want to start with book 1 and read them in order as so much builds upon each other Margaret Peterson Haddix is excellent at presenting topics and situations that really get kids thinking Her books are well written and provide an excellent springboard for classroom or small group discussions not just about the book but the subject matter With this book as with the whole series, the topic was population control This book also deals once again with trust Luke has been living under the identity of Lee and attends school His fake brother , Smits now joins him Smits is totally opposite of Luke and Luke is unsure of Smits ability to keep quiet The danger of being found out is still very much there for Luke To me this along with her other books is a must have book for all classroom libraries

    Among the Barons by Margaret Peterson is an outstanding novel and a great fourth installment to the Shadow Children book series Out of all the books in this series that I have read before, this one is probably my second favorite, right behind Among the Betrayed, which is the third book Just like all of the other books in this series, there a plenty of twists and turns that make you rethink many of the things you read In this installment, the point of view goes back to Luke, but Nina is in the Among the Barons by Margaret Peterson is an outstanding novel and a great fourth installment to the Shadow Children book series Out of all the books in this series that I have read before, this one is probably my second favorite, right behind Among the Betrayed, which is the third book Just like all of the other books in this series, there a plenty of twists and turns that make you rethink many of the things you read In this installment, the point of view goes back to Luke, but Nina is in the story a little bit As for Alia, Percy, and Matthais, they aren t in this book, but they are mentioned a little bit This book series is starting to become one of my favorites yet and I definitely recommend this book to readers who love suspense and mystery
