All his life, Luke Garner has had to live in fear and hiding. He is a third child, an illegal by the passing of the Population Law. Knowledge of his existence spells his death and the death of all who tried to protect him.

Luke's dead best friend Jen Talbot's dad manages to get him a fake I.D. Suddenly he can be out in the world, mingling among others as Lee Grant, a Baron who had actually died in a skiing accident. At Hendricks School for Boys, a terrified Luke tries to adjust to life among other people. He is afraid all the time of someone finding out that he is a third child, and yet doesn't want to forget his real identity, either.

One day, Luke finds a mysterious door in the wall and escapes outside school confines, only to discover that the whole entire school is windowless. This sets of a chain of events involving other third children and Luke's own growing sense of self-confidence, awareness, and knowledge. However, not everyone is who they seem, and Luke must be extremely careful...or else the imposter among them will betray them all.

AMONG THE IMPOSTERS consists mostly of Luke trying to adjust to life in society. While it's perhaps not as exciting as the first in the series, this book is a chillingly convincing story of societal adjustment, and it will only involve readers ever more into this eerie and complex world.
