                    This is really fascinating. This book is about a boy who hides in his family's house in order to stay alive. You see, if he gets discovered, he will lose his life. Because well, he wasn't suppose to be born. The government worries that the population would become overpopulated. So only few amount of kids, for every family suppose to have. As he gets older, it gets more and more harder to be undiscovered. Until one day... someone seeks him and that someone changes his whole life. Now with dangerous obstacles and a rebellious friend, he must escape the problems he faces now so, he make it alive. But will he make it???
