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 clash between good and evil.


A celebrated author in schools across America, Lois Lowry was awarded The Newbery Medal for two of her works: NUMBER THE STARS (1990) and THE GIVER (1993). She has written more than 30 books tackling such topics as the Holocaust, terminal illness, and racism. As a child, she was one of three children born into a military family. Having lived all over the world, Lois now enjoys time in her Massachusetts and Maine homes.
