My project's theme is that you can run away from home only when absolutely necessary. My projects theme goes with this text because Luke runs away from home in this section. In this case It is not okay to run away from home because if anyone saw him he and his family could get killed or put in jail. The part from the text that explains the theme is when Luke hesitates and thinks about the danger this could put him in.(Among the Hidden, pg.33, Haddix)
"Hurry, hurry, hurry. Get out of sight"
"You think you can sneak up on a poor, innocent, unsuspecting girl, who's home all alone?"
"No," he said. "They can't come."
"A call went out to our security guards the minute you stepped on our property. They'll be here any second."
