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 know that I've already done a Waiting on Wednesday on this book, but I couldn't help but feature it again because I'm looking forward to it so much!  The Giver, Gathering Blue, and The Messenger were such good books that this one has to be excellent as well.  I love how they're short, but they make you think a long time.  Be sure and grab a copy!


  1. I loved 'The Giver'! I'll be checking for this one next month.

  2. Oh yes, these books are amazing! So much depth in so few pages.
