Among the Betrayed

As the story of illegal third children continues, we are introduced to a new character, Nina, in this book. It was a nice change to bring a new personality to the table and learn of her experiences in hiding. Once again the question of "what would you do to survive" comes up, and while the plot involves a new character, those from the other books are brought in so we know what's happening with them to.  We don't like books that claim to be sequels, but only mention "the old" characters in passing at the end. This book linked them all up nicely. The circumstances in the prison were a little gross, but nothing offensive in the book.

Enjoy and Happy Reading!
