Gathering Blue
Author
Lois Lowry
Review
Gathering Blue is the second book in the Giver series. It's about a girl Kira who is given the job of repairing a special robe for The Council. She has a deformed leg so without this job she would've been left outside of the village to die so it's a really important job. She learns how to dye threads different colors (except nobody knows how to make the color blue) and embroider the robe to help tell the story of the village over the years. As time goes on she realized that everything isn't add it seems and The Council is controlling the lives of everyone.

The Giver
Author
Lois Lowry
Review
This is my favorite book! I love the character Jonas because he is very unique. I like the character The Giver because he is very set apart from the rest of The Community and you always want to learn more about him. I think it is sad that there are no emotions or colors in the community and that everyone is exactly the same. Finally, I love the bond between Jonas and Gabriel.

Day and June are from two different life styles in the futuristic Republic of America. They have no reason to meet until June's brother is killed and Day becomes the prime suspect. I loved this book! It's funny, romantic, adventurous, and amazing. I can't wait to read the next two books.

Son
Author
Lois Lowry
Review
Son is the fourth book in The Giver series. It's the story of Claire and her son the baby Gabe (the baby Jonas saves in The Giver). Claire is a Birthmother. The job is to breed babies. After giving birth she's sent to another job but they forget to have her start taking pills that suppress emotions like other people in the society so now her brain is more alert and she searches for answers about the baby she delivered. She finds out that he's not thriving and he's going to be put to sleep. Before she can get to him Jonas saves him and leaves the village (from The Giver book). She tries to follow on a supply boat and is shipwrecked. She's rescued by people from another village and decides to climb the cliff to continue her search. At the top of the cliff she meets an evil trader who will take her to her son but wants her youth so he turns her into an old woman. The last part of the book shows Gabe/Gabriel older and has the power to see into people's minds a little and learning Claire is his mom and what the evil Trademaster did to her. Jonas tells him they need to kill Trademaster so Gabriel goes into Trademaster's mind and sees that he loves seeing people suffer. He tells him the people who were suffering aren't suffering anymore and it kills Trademaster and they are all free from the evil.

Seizure
Author
Robin Cook
Review
This book is definitely a page turner! Tying together political corruption, advances in the biomedical field, and mob bosses is not a typical combination. Robin Cook brings it all together very well. With some rather graphic descriptions of gore and a some explicit language this book is not for those with a weak stomach.
