Among the Hidden 9

1. What emotional connections can you make with the text?
2. Which character would you choose to  be your friend? Why did you choose this person? What qualities does he/she possess that you think friends should have?

  1. 1. I can feel sadness for Luke and his family. I feel bad for Luke because he basically is a prisoner in his own house in the locked up way. I feel bad for his family because it's not like they want to keep him locked up.

  4. I feel sad for Luke and his family also. His family feels bad for Luke, and though at times they seem rude, they really just want Luke to be safe. Luke is trapped with no friends and thats very sad. I can connect emotionally because I feel sad when I can't do something like go to the movies by myself of something. Really it's just for my own protection.

    If I could choose a character to be friends with I would choose Luke. I choose him because I feel bad that he doesn't have any friends and think he deserves a friend. He seems like a very nice person and seems like he would be a great friend because he would be so happy to have one. He seems nice and cooperative and like he really would be caring if he had a chance to prove how good a friend he is.

  6. Gabby that is exactely what I was thinking!!! :)

    I would probably be friends with both Jen and Luke. I would be friends with Jen because she seems fun to be aroun. She is daring and nice. I would be friends with Luke because he doesn't have a wide variety of people to be around so he needs an extra shoulder to cry on. These characters both have the qualities I look for in a friend. The seem nice and caring.

  7. Gabby good point. I feel bad for everyone in Luke’s family. He can't go outside or have any friends or talk to people outside his family.
    I connect because when I’m sick I feel the same. I can't go to school or talk with my friends.

    I would want to friends with Luke probably. He seems nice and caring. And plus I would feel great if I knew I was someone first friend. As sierra said a shoulder to cry on since he can't go outside or see many people.

  8. I think that the family would fell some what guilty for luke. he is locked up and very lonely.

    If I could have a friend in this book then it would be matthew. I disagree that it would be luke because he is a third child and wouldn't know how to wrestle. He would also be a little awkward to talk with. Matthew seems like he would at least be a little more lively

  9. Well him having to be locked in his room is kinda like me when I get grounded and sometimes locked in my room.

    I'd probably want to be friends with both because they each have totally different personalities. Jen has a rambunctious personality. She loves breaking rules and having fun. But Luke is more of a quiet person with a shy personality. Being friends with them would bring out totally different parts of me.
