Son by Lois Lowry
“Nineteen years after The Giver, Lois Lowry brings us a new heroine in a book that beautifully unites the series through a final clash between good and evil.”
“I loved discovering that my favorite characters from the series were woven into Claire’s story. As her journey ended, the series had finally come into focus for me as one big, beautiful picture.” —Alex K.
“It’s amazing how perfectly Lois Lowry tied the first three books together with the last. Son is fast-paced, touching, and haunting. It will stick with you for days.” —Miranda B.
“Claire is like a warm hug on a cold day. Her heartfelt desire to find her son is so out of place in their terrifyingly clinical society. Wonderful characters, wonderful message. Love this series.” —Anne L.
“This is one of those special books that’s both meaningful and enjoyable.” — Sami C.
“I read The Giver for school and enjoyed it so much I went on to read the rest of the books. Having Son as the final chapter is perfection.” — Elise N.
