This week's teaser comes from:

Author: Lois Lowry



"There were so many places. Sometimes, hearing the stories, remembering his own childhood, Matty was astounded. At first, having found his way to Village, he had thought his own brutal beginnings - a fatherless hovel for a home; a grim, defeated mother who beat him and his brother bloody - were unusual. But now he knew that there were communities everywhere, sprinkled across the vast landscape of the known world, in which people suffered. Not always from beatings or hunger, the way he had. But from ignorance. From not knowing. From being kept from knowledge."

I know, my teaser is long this week. But I just thought it was a really great one for the book, and the whole series really. Hope you like it, this series is really good! Don't know what took me so long to read it.


  1. I haven't read this one. I found The Giver sort of baffling and didn't carry on with this loosely connected series. My teasers are for Chasing the Skip by Janci Patterson and The Birthday Scandal by Leigh Michaels. Happy reading!

    1. The series aren't really directly connected, but messenger is one where the previous two kinda come together. So it was interesting in that aspect for sure. I'm curious to see what will happen in Son, the final installment. Thanks for stopping by! :)

  2. I want to read this so badly...just found it yesterday! How interesting that I never knew there were more books after The Giver! Great teaser!
