Book 2, The Giver Quartet
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
In perhaps her strongest work to date, Lois Lowry once again creates a mysterious but plausible future world. It is a society ruled by savagery and deceit and that shuns and discards the weak. Left orphaned and physically flawed, young Kira faces a frightening, uncertain future. Blessed with an almost magical talent that keeps her alive, she struggles with ever broadening responsibilities in her quest for truth, discovering things that will change her life forever.
As she did in THE GIVER, Lowry challenges readers to imagine what our world could become, how people could evolve, and what could be considered valuable. Every reader will be taken by Kira’s plight and will long ponder her haunting world and the hope for the future. This ebook includes a sample chapter of MESSENGER.

It stretched the boundaries of perception!
Awesome book. Really makes you think about what a society can turn to. Great read! Part of a trilogy of Lowery's. Also should read The Giver and The Messenger by Lowery.
