Shadow Children: Among the Betrayed

Written by Margaret Peterson Haddix

Nina Idi - a third child in a society where families are allowed only two children - has been betrayed by the boy she loved, and arrested by the Population Police for exposing other alleged third children. Now she is faced with the most difficult choice of her life: Get three other prisoners to admit they are shadow children and be spared herself, or refuse to cooperate and be killed.
