Author: Margaret Peterson Haddix
Publisher: Perfection Learning
Brand: Simon & Schuster Children's Publishing
Kinda DissapointingI expected the last book to the shadow children sequence to have Lee, Nina, Trey and all other 3rd children working undercover in the PP headquarters to fight back. I wanted them to come up with some great adventurous plan and overthrow the government. I wanted the 3rd children to be the one's who saved everyone. But this book was NOT what i expected. Luke spends 1/2 the book wandering the woods talking to random people. Then suddenly, the PP are gone. Just like that. I wanted Luke to be the one who got rid of them - but he didn't.
After he got to headquarters to check things out, something just didn't feel right. The PP were gone but nothing really changed. In the end, Luke realizes he was free all along and that HE was the one who got to make his choices, not the PP. The last few chapters were good, the beginning was just a space-filler, kinda pointless. It wasn't what I expected, and it didn't meet my hopes, but the other 6 were good. :)
