    The Worlds of Lois Lowry

    by Lois Lowry

    When Jonas turns 12, he is singled out for special training from The Giver. Now, it's time for Jonas to receive the truth. There is no turning back.

    Kira, an orphan with a twisted leg, lives in a world where the weak are cast aside. When she is given a task that no other community member can carry out, Kira soon realizes she is surrounded by many mysteries and secrets-and an extraordinary power of her own.

    Matty has always been proud to be Village's Messenger. But now that Village is closing its once-welcoming doors, Matty must make one last journey through the treacherous forest, and must make a great sacrifice to save the place he loves.

    The Worlds of Lois Lowry are brought to life through three extraordinary characters, and the unexpected connections among their lives.

About This Book

Ten-year-old Annemarie and her best friend Ellen often think of life before the war.  It's now 1943, and their life is filled with school, food shortages, and the Nazi soldiers marching through town.  When the Jews are "relocated," Ellen moves in with Annemarie's family and pretends to be one of them, yet her life is still in danger.
