Gathering Blue by Lois Lowry

Makenzie's Review

Gathering Blue is the sequel to The Giver but it is very difficult to understand how. Unlike the normal series, Lowry makes everything different in Gathering Blue than in The Giver. I would expect Jonas and The Giver to be in Gathering Blue but they are not. Instead, Kira and Thomas are introduced. However, Lowry does make a reference to Jonas on the last page:

"His eyes be a very amazing blue," Matt said importantly, as if it might matter". (Lowry 214)

Gathering Blue is about an orphan named Kira with a twisted leg. Kira lives in a world where the wounded are given to the beasts and the talented are taken advantage of. The part that stands out in my mind the most is when they try to give her to beasts just because she had a twisted leg.

I enjoyed this book and would recommend this book for people who like fantasy.
