Re: The Giver and other books by Lois Lowry

I've read The Giver and Number the Stars and I really love both of them. I own Messenger, but I haven't read it yet partially because I've been too busy reading other things, but also because I've heard from many people that it disappointed them and they wished she'd just left it at The Giver.

Number the Stars
was my favorite book when I was about 6 or 7 years old. I actually got told by the librarian of my elementary school that I needed to check out other books so that other students could have a chance at reading that one, because I'd checked it out so many times in a row. I found a copy at a library sale last month and bought it, but haven't gotten around to re-reading it yet.

“Be one who nurtures and builds,
who has an understanding and forgiving heart,
who looks for the best in people.
Leave people better than you found them.”
― Marvin J. Ashton
