Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Trouble is brewing in Village. Once a utopian community that welcomed strangers, Village will soon be cut off to all outsiders. As one of the few able to traverse the forbidding Forest, Matty must deliver the message of Villages closing and try to convince Seers daughter Kira to return with him before its too late. But Forest is now hostile to Matty, too, and he must risk everything to fight his way through it. Messenger is the masterful third novel in Lois Lowrys Giver Quartet, which includes The Giver, Gathering Blue, and Son—all newly designed!
