Waiting on Wednesday (26)

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly awaiting.

 
 Son
by Lois Lowry
Expected Publication: October 2nd, 2012

Synopsis: Told in three separate story lines, Lois Lowry’s Son combines elements from the first three novels in her Giver Quartet — The Giver (1994 Newbery Medal winner), Gathering Blue, and Messenger — into a breathtaking, thought-provoking narrative that wrestles with ideas of human freedom. Thrust again into the dark, claustrophobic world of The Giver, readers will meet an intriguing new heroine, fourteen-year-old Claire. Jonas from The Giver is here too, and Kira, the heroine of Gathering Blue. In a final clash between good and evil, a new hero emerges.

 ***
 Finally, we're going to see more from Jonas. I'm actually really looking forward to this book because I read The Giver waaaay back when I was in elementary school, it was my first dystopia, not that I knew what dystopia was back then. I've actually read it twice because I liked it so much the first time. I only recently realized that there were two more books published in  the series, so I will be reading those as well. I should have some reviews for them up before October :)

What are you waiting on this week?
