Son (The Giver Quartet #4) – Lois Lowry

SON was… an experience. But overall not a good one for me. I’ve raved plenty of times how much I’ve loved THE GIVER ever since I first read it in seventh grade and even re-reading as an adult about two years ago, that opinion still stands. I feel like it opened the doors to dystopians […]

Messenger (The Giver #3) – Lois Lowry

I have to admit — I went into MESSENGER quite skeptical.
