The Shadow Children Series takes place in the future but today in our world, China limits children because of overpopulation. After reading the 1st book compare 3 issues from that book with 3 similar issues that you research about China today. Conclude your paper with ideas that you might have to deal with the issue of overpopulation.

The Shadow Children Series begins with Among the Hidden, where Luke Garner is a prisoner in his own home just because he is a third child. Each family is only allowed two children which is enforced by the Population Police. Haddix does an awesome job dealing with issues of free will and isolation. The series is full of twists and suspense!
