Messenger by Lois Lowry
Recommended audience: Ages 10+
Category: Fantasy, YA fiction, juvenile fiction
This is the book that brings The Giver and Gathering Blue together. I'm not going to say very much about this book because I don't want to give anything away about the other two. I will say that this does bring up some good points about greed and materialism. What are we sacrificing when we become too greedy and are consumed with getting "things"? Are we actually giving up something in our efforts to get more? This was an interesting book and a good ending to this trilogy. I thought it ended a little abruptly but other then that I really enjoyed it.
