Waiting On Wednesday
Hosted by Breaking the Spine
Son by Lois Lowry
Scheduled release: October 2, 2012
Told in three separate story lines, Lois Lowry’s Son combines elements from the first three novels in her Giver Quartet — The Giver (1994 Newbery Medal winner), Gathering Blue, and Messenger — into a breathtaking, thought-provoking narrative that wrestles with ideas of human freedom. Thrust again into the dark, claustrophobic world of The Giver, readers will meet an intriguing new heroine, fourteen-year-old Claire. Jonas from The Giver is here too, and Kira, the heroine ofGathering Blue. In a final clash between good and evil, a new hero emerges.
I haven't read the sequels to "The Giver." Now that a fourth one is coming out, I think that I need to re-read the first one and the sequels to be ready for this!
