Recent Read: Messenger by Lois Lowry

I really love Lois Lowry. I think her books are safe, sweet, and very poignant. I liked how Messenger tied The Giver and Gathering Blue together because I liked Gathering Blue pretty well but was confused how it connected to The Giver. Messenger makes this clear. I would like to say that I liked Messenger almost best of all, but I really didn't like the ending, so that puts it on equal plane with the other two. Lowry's books definitely make you think and explore and are completely beautiful. I also recently enjoyed Gossamer, which is a stand-alone book.
