Title: Son (The Giver Quartet #4)

Author: Lois Lowry
Summary: They called her Water Claire. When she washed up on their shore, no one knew that she came from a society where emotions and colors didn’t exist. That she had become a Vessel at age thirteen. That she had carried a Product at age fourteen. That it had been stolen from her body. Claire had a son. But what became of him she never knew. What was his name? Was he even alive? She was supposed to forget him, but that was impossible. Now Claire will stop at nothing to find her child, even if it means making an unimaginable sacrifice. 

Son thrusts readers once again into the chilling world of the Newbery Medal winning book, The Giver, as well as Gathering Blue and Messengerwhere a new hero emerges. In this thrilling series finale, the startling and long-awaited conclusion to Lois Lowry’s epic tale culminates in a final clash between good and evil.

Review: Stunning. Lois Lowry has created an amazing novel again, the best of The Giver Quartet. This time Lois Lowry combines the stories of The Giver, Gathering Blue, and Messenger in one to make another with a brilliant and moving tale with a fabulous and rightful ending. Lois Lowry knows how to captivate and stun millions. Son is written to conclude The Giver Quartet, and does so amazingly. The Giver was good. Gathering Blue was great. Messenger was Brilliant. They got better and better. And no, Son isn't good. Son is Amazing. Intoxicating. brilliant. Very well written. I genuinely loved Son, which twists and entwines the books previous to it in The Giver Quartet. Son provokes much thought, even after the world of The Giver has been put to sleep, and there is no more to read, no more to enjoy. Claire's story completely fits the worlds of The Giver, Gathering Blue, and messenger. Things you suspect are finally all revealed in Son. Lois Lowry is definitely deserving of her numerous awards, medals and prizes. her writing is too good for her not to earn ant/ The lovely world she has created will still thrive in reader's imagination.
