"In this young adult science fiction thriller, set sometime in the not-too-distant future, overpopulation and food scarcity have led to the Population Laws, restricting couples to having no more than two children. The first of the Shadow Children series tells the story of Luke Garner, a third child, living a secret, hidden life in the attic of his parents' farmhouse. When a housing development threatens the family's privacy, Luke must go even deeper into hiding--where he discovers that he isn't alone. Jonathan Davis reads with richness and sincerity, drawing listeners into a world that is both starkly different and frighteningly familiar. S.E.S. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine"
