About the Author

Lois Lowry is a two-time Newbery Medal winner for Number the Stars (1990) and The Giver (1994), the first dystopian novel in a quartet that includes Gathering Blue, Messenger, and, as of fall 2012, Son. She now divides her time between Cambridge, Massachusetts, and an 1840s farmhouse in Maine. Visit her website at www.loislowry.com.

Reviews

"Lowry masterfully presents another thought-provoking, haunting tale in this third novel, a companion to The Giver and Gathering Blue." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Lowry moves far beyond message, writing with a beautiful simplicity rooted in political fable, in warm domestic detail, and in a wild natural world, just on the edge of realism." -- Booklist (starred review)

"Told in simple, evocative prose, this companion to The Giver (1993) and Gathering Blue (2000) can stand on its own as a powerful tale of great beauty. -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
