The Giver Gathering Blue Messenger Son Numbering the Stars
The Giver Gathering Blue Messenger Son Number the Stars
Discover More Books by Lois Lowry Twelve-year-old Jonas lives in a seemingly ideal world. Not until he is given his life assignment as the Receiver does he begin to understand the dark secrets behind his fragile community. Left orphaned and physically flawed, young Kira faces a frightening, uncertain future. She struggles with ever broadening responsibilities in her quest for truth, discovering things that will change her life forever. Once a utopian community that prided itself on welcoming strangers, Village will soon be cut off to all outsiders. Matty must deliver the message of Village’s closing and try to convince Seer’s daughter Kira to return with him before it’s too late. Claire will stop at nothing to find her child, even if it means making an unimaginable sacrifice. In this thrilling series finale, Son thrusts readers once again into the chilling world of The Giver. Through the eyes of ten-year-old Annemarie, we watch as the Danish Resistance smuggles almost the entire Jewish population of Denmark, nearly seven thousand people, across the sea to Sweden.
Anastasia Krupnik Anastasia Krupnik Again Anastasia at Your Service Anastasia Off Her Rocker Anastasia on Her Own
Anastasia Krupnik Anastasia Again Anastasia at Your Service Anastasia Off Her Rocker Anastasia on Her Own
Anastasia's tenth year has some good things, like falling in love and really getting to know her grandmother, and some bad things, like finding out about an impending baby brother. Twelve-year-old Anastasia is horrified at her family's decision to move from their city apartment to a house in the suburbs. Twelve-year-old Anastasia has a series of disastrous experiences when, expecting to get a job as a lady's companion, she is hired to be a maid. Anastasia's seventh-grade science project becomes almost more than she can handle, but brother Sam, age three, and a bust of Freud nobly aid her. Her family's new, organized schedule for easy housekeeping makes Anastasia confident that she can run the household while her mother is out of town, until she hits unexpected complications.
Willoughbys On the Horizon
The Willoughbys On the Horizon
A delightfully tongue-in-cheek story about parents trying to get rid of their four children and the children who are all too happy to lose their beastly parents and be on their own. A moving account of the lives lost in two of WWII’s most infamous events: Pearl Harbor and Hiroshima.

Editorial Reviews

Review

“A powerful and provocative novel”—The New York Times

 

“Wrought with admirable skill -- the emptiness and menace underlying this Utopia emerge step by inexorable step: a richly provocative novel.”—Kirkus, starred review


“Lowry is once again in top form raising many questions while answering few, and unwinding a tale fit for the most adventurous readers.”—Publishers Weekly, starred review

 

“The simplicity and directness of Lowry's writing force readers to grapple with their own thoughts.”— Booklist, starred review

 

“The theme of balancing the values of freedom and security is beautifully presented.”— The Horn Book Magazine, starred review
