"Son" by Lois Lowry

Rating: Good (4)

Son  by  Lois Lowry

In "The Giver," Jonas rescues a baby named Gabriel. In "Son," the final book of the Giver Quartet, the story of Gabriel's mother is explored. Young Claire was assigned to be a "birthmother", to produce children much like the way a factory produces goods. After her first birth goes wrong, she is assigned to work a different job. However, she cannot forget the feeling of her son in her arms, who she never saw but loved dearly.
And thus, her search for her son begins.
From an emotionless city to a village by the sea to a peaceful town haunted by a sinister being, Claire's world is full of adventure and struggle. Readers looking for a beautifully written novel with some mystery and action will find Son a wonderful read. While not as thought-provoking as "The Giver," "Son" is still a worthwhile novel.
