Luke Garner is a third-born in a restrictive society that allows only two children per family. Risking his life, he came out of hiding to fight against the Population Police laws. Now, in the final volume of Margaret Peterson Haddix's suspenseful Shadow Children series, Luke inadvertently sets off a rebellion that results in the overthrow of the government. The people are finally free. But who is in charge now? And will this new freedom be everything they had hoped?
As the final book in the series, it was actually a bit of a let-down. Everything seemed to happen so swiftly, with no real rhyme or reason. It seemed as if Ms. Haddix knew she needed a resolution of some kind, but couldn't figure out how to make it happen. Rather disappointing, after having waited 7 books for this.
