Gathering Blue by Lois Lowry is an amazing book. I would recommend this book to kids age 11-adult because this book makes you anticipate and makes you think up of many possibilities of what might happen. I think this book is full of many mysteries and just makes you want to read and read until you find out what's really happening. Kira the main character was born imperfect she was a tyke (child) with a twisted foot so she wasn't like any other tyke. She already had problems, but now she has more problems since her mom died and now people want her out of the village. She can't leave because she has no where to go and she might be taken by the beasts. So there is a trial held to see if she can stay or not, and of course she stays since she has a wonderful talent. At a young age Kira found out that her fingers move on their own to make masterpieces out of threads. She is left to live because of her talent. Kira is the weaver, Thomas her friend is a carver, and a little girl named Jo is a singer. These three play an important role in the village. Read to find out what they discover about the village and its secrets. The book is just amazing because of the plot and the writing style. The language is like how any little boy or girl would speak so it's very nice to read in child language. The plot is full of mystery like there is a puzzle each main character have to find out, but overall I loved the book. If you want to read Gathering Blue you should read the Giver first, then Gathering Blue, and then The Messenger, and lastly Son. These books are all by Lois Lowry.
