Re: The Giver and other books by Lois Lowry

Has anyone read The Willoughbys by Lois Lowry? It sounds interesting and a bit dark, plus a bit of commentary on family/society. Was wondering if it was as good as it sounds.

(And on a side note, another book with an ordinary kid dealing with a sibling with leukemia is Drums, Girls, and Dangerous Pie by Jordan Sonnenblick. It has a different, more modern and sarcastic feel than A Summer to Die, but is still very recommended.)
I haven't read that one, but it sounds to me like you would enjoy My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult.
