This book, unlike Lowry's other book The Giver, is not much of a utopia but more like an idea based community. True, people you don't expect have more power than actually visible, but this community is more reliant on how the people of the community think, which is different than ideans forced on others. What I'm trying to get at is that, this book is different than others and stands out.
I'm not going to give a summary, and instead you get my views on the book. I felt this engaging book delivered a powerful message about belonging and the right thing. It also showed me that sometimes what we want most might not be the best decision.
All in all, this book is wonderful and when you read it, you always will learn something.
