Waiting on Wednesday: Son by Lois Lowry

This is Breaking the Spine's Waiting for Wednesday, where bloggers post about a book they just can't wait to get their hands on! 

   Son by Lois Lowry

October 2nd 2012

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.

I don't usually make my Waiting on Wednesday posts for a book so far out from its release date, but I really think everyone should pre-order this book now!


  1. This sounds awesome! I loved The Giver, truly original.

  2. I love The Giver, Gathering Blue and I JUST literally finished Messenger. I started crying until I looked up any more books by Lois, and found Son. Now I am so happy and cannot WAIT until this book arrives in stores. :)

    1. I really like the idea of combining the three story lines into one, I hope it lives up to all my hopes!
