Gathering Blue - Lois Lowery - 4 Stars

Gathering Blue (The Giver, #2) Gathering Blue by Lois Lowry

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Set in the distant future there is a community where the deformed or the sick are taken to "the fields" to await "the beasts" and certain death. The Singer, The Carver, and The Weaver play vital roles in the community's history and future. While surrounded in luxury like nothing she has ever experienced, Kira learns that she is one of the few that can make a difference...

While not a sequel to The Giver, it is set in the same type of distant future that is removed from what we know of civilization. This is a great quick read into a world that is not too much of an impossibility and shows the delicate nature of one's perceived reality.
