But Luke didn’t like to be called Lee, didn’t like even to be reminded that he was supposed to be somebody else. Everyone knows we’re almost all third children with fake . Nobody’s going to report us. Really, Mr. Hendricks said. Is your memory that short?

Among the Barons is the fourth book in a seven book series that revolves around shadow children. I consider this series/book a must read because it was suspenseful, mysterious, and it had some humor it to lighten the mood.
