This book would be a good fit for middle school readers as some of the topics are more complex.
Strict customs, dirt homes, and violent beasts may not seem like the warm environment most are accustomed but to Kira this describes home. Faced with the grief of her recently deceased mother, Kira is now left to fend for herself with an injured leg in the middle of a community who has deemed her useless her entire life. To her surprise, during a trial to determine her fate, Kira is appointed a unique and honorable role. Her new status and task seems at first to be a miraculous change of pace however her new position may not be as pleasant as it first seemed. Kira quickly discovers the community she once thought she knew holds a dangerous secret that will alter her life forever.
Disclaimer: There are some slightly gruesome descriptions about injuries, death, and violence. ( )

Gathering Blue, the Book 2 of The Giver Quartet written by Lois Lowry, illustrates the life of a young, orphaned girl with a disability, living in an unsophisticated community rebuilt after the ruins. Even though the community had no advanced technology and the people were living a simple life, they are held together by rules under the leadership of the Council of the Guardians. The book took the 9th and 10th spot on Children's Chapter Book Best Sellers list on October 8, 2000, and October 29, 2000, respectively. In 2001, it was chosen as the winner of Selected Audiobooks for Young Adults by the American Library Association.

It was a pleasure to read Gathering Blue. For one thing, the world was so different from that of in The Giver. Lowry continues to amaze me at her ability to create a well-realized fictional world that helped me imagine the culture and traditions of a crude community; and, the characteristics of the men, women, and their tykes. It's fascinating that you can tell the age of characters based on the number of syllables their respective names have: young children have one-syllable names; early teens, two-syllables; adults, three-syllables; and senior citizens, four-syllables.

I could also feel the eagerness and hardship Kira went through as she underwent the process of restoring and repairing the robe.

Additionally, Kira's story coincided with Jonas' and I was thrilled to read the part where the presence of Jonas in the community was alluded to. There isn't much information about what happened to him but the information was just enough to make me more eager to read the third book, Messenger.

Lastly, the book makes me reflect on the impact of our choices that we make in life just to get what we want and the sacrifices we can make for the greater good. ( )

This was interesting, but I kept wanting it to connect to the first book, and I never saw the connection, other than the post-apocalyptic/dystopian nature of the story. I think I would have enjoyed it more if I'd viewed it as a stand-alone. Perhaps the following books will pull things together. ( )

I was so excited to find that there was more to the story of The Giver! Our protagonist of this story, however, resides in another part of the same world with a much different society.
Great world-building, fascinating characters, but I was hoping for more about Jonas. ( )

Happy to be moving along with this series quickly. ( )

''The Giver'' was an unforgettable, one-of-a-kind book that spoke as much to adults, myself included, as to children. The future world it depicted was rich and seductive and -- frightening thought -- completely plausible. The brute, survivalist world of ''Gathering Blue'' is much less convincing, with neither the dimension nor the subtlety of ''The Giver.'' Many of the characters in ''Gathering Blue'' are presented as either good or bad, and lack the complexity of real people.

"Mother?" There was no reply. She hadn't expected one. Her mother had been dead now for four days, and Kira could tell that the last of her spirit was drifting away.

She knew something else as well, and with the realization, she rose from the damp grass to go indoors, to find her father and tell him that she could not be his eyes. That she must stay.
