Kira, an orphan with a twisted leg, lives in a world where the weak are cast aside. She fears for her future until she is spared by the all-powerful Council of Guardians. Kira is a gifted weaver and is given a task that no other community member can do. While her talent keeps her alive and brings certain privileges, Kira soon realizes she is surrounded by many mysteries and secrets. No one must know of her plans to uncover the truth about her world and see what places exist beyond.
Praise for THE GIVER: "The Giver, a powerful and provocative novel, is sure to keep older children reading and thinking." New York Times "Lowry is once again in top form - raising many questions while answering few, and unwinding a tale fit for the most adventurous readers." Publishers Weekly
