As a young boy, Matty escaped from another place to live in the Village. For the last six years, he has lived peacefully there with the blind Seer. Now changes are coming to the Village, and the nearby Forest is turning hostile. Will Matty be able to make one last trip through the Forest to bring the Seer's daughter Kira to live in the Village before its boundaries close? If you enjoy dystopian fiction and Lois Lowry's other books, The Giver and Gathering Blue, be sure to read this book. These three companion books have themes and characters in common. Lowry's new book, Son, will answer many of the questions raised in the first three books.
