The book "Among the Enemy" is an enthralling novel that always kept me at the edge of my seat. The main character is an illegal child. Yet he sacrifices himself to save his best friends and people like him. He is met with challenges and overcomes them with the help of friends of all ages. I highly recommend this realistic fiction story and I hope you will too.
