Publisher Comments:

Told in three separate story lines, Lois Lowrys 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.

Synopsis:
