Among the Betrayed (Shadow Children #3)
"Everything that had happened to Nina was real. She had real handcuffs on her wrists, real scars on her back, real fear flooding her mind.
"'They're going to kill me,' Nina whispered, and it was almost a relief to finally, finally give up hope."

'Among the Betrayed' shifts focus and the protagonist of the first two books in Haddix's seven-volume series becomes a minor player. A peripheral character in 'Among the Impostors,' Nina, takes center stage. Readers of the first two books, and it definitely is a plus to have read these first, will themselves not be sure whether to trust Nina.

Haddix does a great job of revealing how a situation like a political prison would work, especially when you add intrigue within the prison itself, and the Population Police. There aren't very many characters most of the ...more

For Nina, she ran into many obstacles. The first big one, was being a third child, which meant she either had to stay hidden or live under a different name. Nina tried to get with other children that were the third ones in their families and they turned on her. I think if she would have gotten a ...more

I liked this book a lot. It is an easy read. I thought the book had a mysterious or dangerous feel to it. Just how the children had to hide and have fake identities.

I liked the book, Among The Betrayed, because it always left me thinking what would happen next. I rated the book four stars, because the end left me hanging. I did not know what would happen later in Nina's life. Nina is the main character who is an illegal third child. The book is based off a government that only allows two children because of a famine in food. Where did the third children live?
The book was about third children who were born, and then the law was passe ...more
