I had to pick up this book when I saw it at the book store because it's a companion to one of my all time favorite books "The Giver," also by Lois Lowry. The only thing I didn't like about it (or "The Giver" for that matter) was that when it ended I wanted to know more! I tend to think that's the mark of a good book. When it's finished you want it to keep going just so you can find out what happens to the characters next. What are they like when they grow up? Do they accomplish their dreams? Does it work out right or are there more problems?
It said in the back of the book that there's going to be a third book to kind of finish the "trilogy" that she's going after. I sure hope it's soon!
