Among The Hidden Book Review

So... CAN I JUST SAY I LOVED THIS BOOK!!!!!!!!!! OMG!
This book is so amazing I can't even explain my excitement to write this review!
Summary from wikipedia because I can't exactly explain it:

In a futuristic society the world is controlled by a new government and "The Population Police" who have decreed that no family shall have more than two children. These laws having been brought on supposedly by overpopulation, severe famine and death. Any child being born third or after in a family is a "shadow child" not to be seen by anyone or they will be taken away and killed along with their family and anyone who harbors them.
Luke Garner is a third child. His two older brothers Matthew and Mark go to school and have futures, but Luke must stay hidden, he can never have a job or get married or leave the farm. Luke was allowed to play outside on his family's farm and the woods, until the developers came. New homes are built next to Luke's farm and the woods are torn down, now he is no longer allowed outside, no longer allowed to eat dinner with his family in case he might be seen. Luke is miserable, until one day he sees a girl's face in a window, a window of a home that already has two children. Luke has found another third child and one day he dares to meet her.
The other third child is Jen and her father works for the Population Police as a spy trying to overthrow the corrupt government. Jen introduces Luke to things he's never experienced, television, computers and junk food, things only the rich and government officials are allowed to have. Jen is planning a rally of third children who will march in front of the country's leader demanding their right to exist in freedom. Luke and Jen get into a fight because Luke does not want to go to the rally, but they make up before Jen leaves.
Luke feels terrible for not going with Jen to the rally. He waits anxiously at home for word of what has happened, but a week passes and there is nothing so Luke sneaks back to Jen's home to look for her, unaware that the security system brings Jen's father rushing home, that's when Luke learns than Jen has been shot dead on the steps of the president's home along with every other third child who attended the rally. Jen's father Mr. Talbot warns Luke that he is in danger because he logged on to the third child chat room Jen had set up and that the Population Police are on the way there right now and quickly hides Luke when the other officers show up at his home. Mr. Talbot tells Luke that he will supply Luke with a fake ID card so that the government believes he is someone else, someone with the right to live. The story ends with Luke dressed in new clothes riding in a car with his new identity as Lee Grant the son of barons heading off to his new life. This leads us into the second novel in the series "Among the Impostors" where Luke is sent to a school far away with his new fake identity.

FANGIRL BY RAINBOW ROWELL

SPOILER ALERT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



So... I just can NOT wrap my head around this book. It is NOT confusing, it just ends in a weird way. I am going to try to give at least a quick summary BUT honestly... thats all I got :0

The book starts off with Cath and Wren. Heehee, Cath. Wren. CATHWREN=CATHRINE???!!! GET IT!!!????

Anyway, Cath and Wren are twins who are starting college. Their mom left them when they were 8 years old so they grew up with only a dad. Wren is the party outgoing twin with a pixie hair cut. Cath is the main twin in the book and she is an aspiring author who writes fan fiction. She also is a little awkward with anxiety. Got that so far? Okay, so Cath walks in her room and there is A BOY??!! NOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!! Don't worry it's just Cath's roommate's friend (NOT BOYFRIEND which is what Cath thought at first) Wren pretty much drifts off into a partying college girl and Cath is still stuck in a fan fiction dream. If you're wondering, YES THERE IS A RELATIONSHIP!!!! Of course, with Cath and... NO NOT NICK THE BOY SHE WRITES WITH IN THE LIBRARY! IT. IS. ARE YOU READY???!!!!



L.E.V.I

YES YES YES!
You read that correctly! Levi is a college guy who works at starbucks and happens to be Cath's roommate's friend we talked about in the beginning. This happens and that happens, but pretty much it is packed full of college goodness. Except the cuss words. MANY MANY cuss words, which I did NOT appreciate! Overall, it's a good book but I would recommend it for ages 14+ depending on how mature you are to handle it.
I hope you enjoy the book! Give me your thoughts in the comments!

Isle of the Lost by Melissa De Le Cruz

Let me just start out by saying OH MY GOSH!!!! This book was amazing. I hope that they do more Disney Decendants books soon to continue the story after the movie!

What was the book about you ask? Let me take a minute to tell ya!
This book was about the children of disney characters like Belle & Beast, Maleficent, Jafar, the Evil Queen, Cruella DeVil, and more! The main focus is on the villains sons and daughters. All of the villains and their sidekicks were banished to an island with a forcefield to keep out magic but one day Carlos, the son of Cruella, and Evie, the daughter of the evil queen, were in a treehouse working on a machine to possibly take down the forcefield and a big spark happened! The basic way to say what happened there, is THEY POKED A HOLE IN THE FORCEFIELD!!!!!!! WOW AWESOME RIGHT??!! The two kept it a secret until Evie heard Mal, the daughter of Maleficent, talking to Jay, the son of Jafar, about how her mother wanted her to find the Dragon's Eye (Maleficent's scepter which was hidden on the island and apparently didn't work because of the forcefield). Let me go back a little bit, Maleficent's bird and scepter were of no power and turned to stone somewhere on the island, but when the whole BOOM SPARK thing happened, they turned back to what they once were which caused Maleficent's bird to find her and tell her how the scepter came to power!

Now back to where I was. When Evie overheard Jay and Mal talking, she went up to them and explained what had happened! Mal and the others then went to Carlos's house to get answers. A couple chapters later, they all embarked on a journey to find the scepter (which I won't spoil for you)

IN ALL OF THIS, there are a couple chapters about Prince Ben, the son of Belle and Beast, making a proclamation to let some of the children of the Isle of the Lost live in Auradon (the kingdom with all the fairytale come trues, princesses and princes) The proclamation is made at the end and in the movie, where the story continues....

Overall it was an amazing book with awesome detail! I give it 5 out of 5 stars. Recommended for all ages!
