Told in three separate story lines, Lois Lowry's 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. Thrust again into the dark, claustrophobic world of The Giver, readers will meet an intriguing new heroine, fourteen-year-old Claire. Jonas from The Giver is here too, and Kira, the heroine of Gathering Blue. In a final clash between good and evil, a new hero emerges. The whole Quartet has been redesigned in honor of this long-awaited grand finale!
