Son by Lois Lowry

Unlike the other Birthmothers in her utopian community, teenaged Claire forms an attachment to her baby, feeling a great loss when he is taken to the Nurturing Center to be adopted by a family unit.





I think Son is great book because it has a wondering ending. It is a big surprise how the book ends. I think this book might make it to the end and the OPLbery award.

Lois Lowry never ceases to amaze. I was pleasantly surprised that Son was a creative, clever story. She usually writes serious, dark stories…………… not really happy fiction. Trust me, you’ll never find a book quite like it. It jumps around and twists when you think you’ve figured it all out.
Claire lives in a society where everyone is given a task. She fails at hers and is reassigned………….. Which results in complications no one expected. She is brave and remarkably determined. It’s all a good representation of us humans. Speaking of which, the characters are believable and vivid. I think Son is going to go all the way and win. It’s too good to overlook.
