Inhaltsangabe: Lois Lowry won the first of her two Newbery Medals in 1990 for Number the Stars. Six years later she ushered readers back into the mysterious but plausible future world of The Giver to tell the story of Kira, orphaned, physically flawed, and left with an uncertain future. This second book in the Giver Quartet has been stunningly redesigned in both paperback and hardcover.As she did in The Giver and later The Messenger, in Gathering Blue Lois Lowry challenges readers to imagine what our world could become, how people could evolve, and what could be considered valuable. Return again to the world of The Giver in Lowry?s concluding volume, Son, available in September 2012.
Lois Lowry?s Gathering Blue continues the quartet beginning with the quintessential dystopian novel, The Giver, followed by Messenger and Son.
Kira, an orphan with a twisted leg, lives in a world where the weak are cast aside. She fears for her future until she is spared by the all-powerful Council of Guardians. Kira is a gifted weaver and is given a task that no other community member can do. While her talent keeps her alive and brings certain privileges, Kira soon realizes she is surrounded by many mysteries and secrets. No one must know of her plans to uncover the truth about her world and see what places exist beyond.
