Lois Lowry's masterpieces
The Giver Quartet
by Lois Lowry
Anyone who has ever read The Giver, Lowry's first book in this collection, has never forgotten it. The story of Jonas and Gabriel will haunt you long after you have finished it. The sense of unease continues in the second book, Gathering Blue, Messenger, while all characters come together movingly in Son, the concluding book of the quartet.
Words can't really express how great these books are. I can only say that you must read them! Very highly recommended.
