Messenger is a sequel to the book "Gathering Blue" and are both written by Lois Lowry Matt who was once a young boy who grew up in a village but now he is Matty and lives with the blind man named Christopher. It has been six years since he has come to the Village and now the Village is changing and the Forests are changing and it is all due to the people in the Village. People have been trading things to get what they really want and people began to get much more selfish and greedy. The leader of the Village has tried to do something so he has given Matty the job to deliver a message to every town and tell them what the Village is doing. Matty is now going on a journey that will have his life depend on it and he will get Christopher's daughter named Kira since the Village is going to be shut down due the the Leader's decision that the other towns shouldn't be informed and the Village border will be shut and no one will be allowed in so Matty has gone to retrieve Kira.
I recommend this book for teens ages 11-18 because his is a teen book and has a lot of adventure and I think that teens like to read adventure books, event though this was a good adventure book I think that there are a few things about the plot that the author should change. The author left the book as a cliff hanger and I was really into the book, but it just stopped right there and I just couldn't believe it I wanted to know what happened next. If the author continued to write I would had given it a 5/5 stars. The character and writing style is the best and I like to read books written by Lois Lowry because there is a mysteries that are connected with each other. Overall I thought that Messenger was a good book because there were a lot of parts where I saw it connect back with "The Giver" and "Gathering Blue" and that there could be a mystery that could be solved. That's why I like this book.
