Why are the boys acting this
way? Why are they being so cruel to Luke? Is this the way all
boys at private school act? This is not what Luke had ever imagined
school would be. During all those years in hiding, he had longed
to go to school like his order brothers did. But, of course, Luke
was not allowed. He was a third child. An outlaw. If
the Population Police learned about him, he would be killed. So he
spent his days hiding n the house -- never seen by anyone outside the family.
But now, here he is with a fake ID in an exclusive boys boarding school.
Wherever he goes, the other boys torment him. He is miserable.
He can't make friends. He can't find his way around the school.
And, he can't use his own name. If this is freedom, he would rather
go home and live in the attic again. But that's not possible.
He can never go home again. This is his new life. And he must
learn to blend in
Among the Impostors.
The book, Among the Imposters
is about how Luke Garner is coming out of hiding as a third child. He has
an I.D. card that says he is Lee Grant, son of one of the richest man of
the time. Luke Garner/Lee Grant got help from his new neighbor, Mr. Talbot.
Mr. Talbot took Luke/Lee to Hendricks school for Boys. Imagine, seeing
hundreds of humans everyday when for about 12 or 13 years the only humans
you've seen are your own family. His new roommate doesn't help with the
situation, either. Every night before bed, Jackal Boy (what Luke/Lee calls
him) verbally abuses him until Jackal Boy gets bored.
this book to people who love heart-stopping thrillers. I love the way Haddix
kept the suspense going from the beginning. I think that any type of person
would love this book because it has a little bit of everything for everyone.
