about this item
HIDE OR FIGHT? Matthias, an illegal third child, is caught in the cross fire between rebels and the Population Police. When he unwittingly saves a Population Police officer, Matthias is brought to Population Police headquarters to train as an officer himself. There he meets Nina, another third-born who enlists his help in a plot to undermine the Population Police. But Matthias is under constant scrutiny, and he has no idea whom he can trust. What can one boy do against a wicked bureaucracy?
As a Shadow Child, the illegal third born in a futuristic society, Matthias attempts to make an escape from his family before the Population Police arrive to take him away, yet when he saves the life of a police officer and is given a chance to join their squad under a secret identity, Matthias finds it difficult to work with the people he once considered his enemy.
