Among the Hidden #1

On Monday, we begin reading the novel Among the Hidden. Each week, I will post a question or two for you to respond to by that Friday. This weeks questions are due on Oct. 30th.
  1. The author doesn't specify the setting for Among the Hidden. Where do you think it takes place? When do you think it takes place?
  2. Luke's family is terrified of the government. Why? What are some of the tactics the government employs to make ordinary families like his feel powerless?

    2. Because the law says that you cannot have mores than 2 children and in his family has 3 kids. They dont want the Goverment to know about Luke.

  5. 1.I think that it takes place in one of the more northern states like North Dakota, Montana, or Minnesota. I think it takes place in the mid 1900's like, 1956 or 1968. 2. Because they are afraid that if the Population Police come to their door that they will take Luke away and they will get arrested for keeping another child in the house.Some of the tactics that they employ are that they are bigger then them and that they can do things to their families and arrest the ones that break that certain law!!

  12. 1.I think the story takes place in Europe during the late 1900's.

    2.Luke's family is terrified of the goverment because of Luke. The goverment made a law that a family could have no more than two children, because of population. If a women gave birth to a child after she had two you had to give it away.Luke's mom kept Luke so whenever someone came to the house Luke had to hide because they wanted nobody to know about Luke.

  21. 1. I think that it takes place Russia, and it is the 1920's.
    2. If they weren't breaking the law I don't think they would be as scared as they are. It isn't a fair law,but it's the law, and anyone could turn them in at any time if they found out what was going on.
