Product description

Lois Lowry won her first Newbery Medal in 1994 for "The Giver. "Six years later, she ushered readers back into its mysterious but plausible future world in "Gathering Blue "to tell the story of Kira, orphaned, physically flawed, and left with an uncertain future. This second book in the Giver Quartet has been stunningly redesigned in paperback. As she did in "The Giver "and later" Messenger, " in "Gathering Blue "Lois Lowry challenges readers to imagine what our world could become, how people could evolve, and what could be considered valuable.

Review quote

"Lowry returns to the metaphorical future world of her Newbery-winning The Giver. . . . Plenty of material for thought and discussion here, plus a touch of magic and a tantalizing hint about the previous book's famously ambiguous ending." (6/15/00) Kirkus Reviews with Pointers "Lowry is a master at creating worlds, both real and imagined, and this incarnation of our civilization some time in the future is one of her strongest creations." --Booklist, starred review (6/1/00) Booklist, ALA, Starred Review
