Author's books, genres, messages/themes

Margaret Peterson Haddix wrote lots of books and even series but I am going to focus on one book called "Among The Hidden." Among The Hidden" is about a boy that's a third child in his family but the government only allows two children per family......What happens next well you will have to read to find out.

"Quotes"

"Maybe everyone is just waiting for someone else to save them." What Margaret is trying to say is that not everyone can do something by themselves and the will need help along the way.

"Even the most independent people sometimes needed help. And if I'd learned nothing else from my life thus far, it was that you don't always end up where you think you're going." What Margaret is trying to say is that just because you dream it doesn't mean that's what your going to do.
