Gathering Blue

Lois Lowry

Story image 1_0

As she did in The Giver, in Gathering Blue Lois Lowry challenges readers to imagine what our world could become, how people could evolve, and what could be considered valuable.

Lame and suddenly orphaned, Kira is mysteriously removed from her squalid village to live in the palatial Council Edifice, where she is expected to use her gifts as a weaver to do the bidding of the all-powerful Guardians.

This book tells us a different story than The Giver, it introduces us to Kira, who like Lucas in The Giver has gifts that she is just becoming aware of. A good, quick read that I really liked.
