Waiting on Wednesday - 97

Waiting on Wednesday was started by Jill at Breaking the Spine for bloggers and readers to see what new books are going to be published.
Son by Lois Lowry

Told in three separate story lines, Lois Lowry's Son combines elements from the first three novels in her Giver Quartet - The Giver (1994 Newbery Medal winner), Gatherine Blue, and Messenger - into a breathtaking, thought-provoking narrative that wrestles with ideas of human freedom. Thrust again into the dark, claustrophobic world of The Giver, readers will meet an intriguing new heroine, fourteen-year-old Claire. Jonas from The Giver is here too, and Kira, the heroine of Gatherine Blue. In a final clash between good and evil, a new hero emerges.

The Giver is one of my favorite books so I'm so excited to return to that world! I haven't read Messenger yet, so I'll have to get to that before Son is released on October 2, 2012.

Really interesting-I can't believe there's going to be another story set in that world. Love that there's a heroine this time!
