Gathering Blue, now stunningly redesigned in paperback, is the second book in the Giver Quartet which began with The Giver, the Newbery Medal winner in 1994. It tells the story of Kira, orphaned, physically flawed, and left with an uncertain future, and challenges readers to imagine what our world could become, how people could evolve, and what could be considered valuable.

"Lowry returns to the metaphorical future world of her Newbery-winning The Giver. . . . Plenty of material for thought and discussion here, plus a touch of magic and a tantalizing hint about the previous book’s famously ambiguous ending." (6/15/00) Kirkus Reviews with Pointers

"Lowry is a master at creating worlds, both real and imagined, and this incarnation of our civilization some time in the future is one of her strongest creations." —Booklist, starred review (6/1/00) Booklist, ALA, Starred Review —
