Among the Barons

Among the Barons: Book Four in the Shadow Children Sequence

I just finished Among the Barons by Margaret Peterson Haddix. Among the Barons is the fourth book in the Shadow Children series.The main characters are Lee Grant (Luke Garner), Smithfield Grant (Smits), and Mr. and Mrs. Grant.The first setting is at Hardwick School for Boys.  The second setting is Grant’s mansion.

When Luke is finally getting used to being out in a open environment at Hardwick School for Boys, Mr. Hardwick tells him that Smithfield Grant, his “little brother” which he calls Smits, is going to attend at Lee’s school with him. When he gets used to it, Mr. Hardwick tells him that now Mr. and Mrs. Grant, his “parents”, want him back at home to stay for a while. Now Luke sees that living with Barons was as dangerous as ever. Will Smits find out his secret? Or will his suspicious body guard, Oscar, discover he’s a third child with a fake identity?

Among the Barons was an awesome suspenseful read for me and will be for you. “Haddix is a superb story-teller”, says the School Library Journal. This has got to be on the “Best Books Ever” list.

Among the Barons book level would be for fourth to eighth grade boys and girls.Sophia Good-Reads would rate this book 4.5 stars!!!!!!
