About this item
A Reluctant Hero Trey may have saved Luke's life, but he still thinks of himself as a coward who can barely stand to be outdoors. Now Trey finds out Luke has been taken prisoner at Population Police headquarters. Trey is terrified, but he knows that if he doesn't rescue his friend, no one will. At police headquarters, Trey impersonates an officer to try getting to Luke. But just when it looks like he's close, Trey suddenly finds himself in danger of exposing not just himself but all shadow children.
In a world where families are only allowed two children, third children are considered illegal and sent away to prison, but when Trey and the "Shadow Children" decide to take a stand against the system, they are aware that only one side will be victorious in this dangerous war. Reprint.
