Staff Reviews

"In this provocative and profoundly meaningful novel about a mother’s
love for her son, the legendary Lois Lowry returns us to the menacingly
sterile world of The Giver with a narrative that truly stands on its own
even as it offers a stunning conclusion to a story that’s been twenty
years in the making."

— Meghan G.

"The Giver came out when I was already an adult. I always thought it was the best kids’ book I’d ever read…until I read Son."

— Merrilee

“So much about the community in The Giver is mysterious to its members. In Son, an aspect that many readers couldn't help but wonder about -- the experience of the Birthmothers -- is detailed. A compelling final volume, this new story adds depth and maturity to The Giver quartet.”
— Shoshana Flax, Brookline Booksmith, Brookline, MA
