Book Review: Son - Lois Lowry

Son (The Giver, #4)
They called her Water Claire.  When she washed up on their shore, no one knew that she came from a society where emotions and colors didn't exist.  That she had become a Vessel at age thirteen. That she had carried a Product at age fourteen.  That it had been stolen from her body.  Claire had a son.  But what became of him she never knew.  What was his name?  Was he even alive?  She was supposed to forget him, but that was impossible.  Now Claire will stop at nothing to find her child, even if it means making an unimaginable sacrifice.

Son thrusts readers once again into the chilling world of the Newbery Medal winning book, The Giver, as well as Gathering Blue and Messenger where a new hero emerges.  In this thrilling series finale, the startling and long-awaited conclusion to Lois Lowry's epic tale culminates in a final class between good and evil.

3/5 starts (liked it)
I thought this was a great conclusion to the series.  We find out more about Jonas and where he is.  Also Kira and what life became of her after the end of Messenger.  As well as other characters that we got to know throughout the series.  We also find thing out from Claire's perspective since she was around when Jonas became the Receiver in the town they lived in.  Claire goes through a lot in the book to get to her son.  I thought it ended well and explained everything.
