Description

“Gathering Blue” is a dystopian young adult novel by Lois Lowry, published in 2000. The book is set in a society that is different from the one depicted in Lowry’s previous novel, “The Giver,” but shares some similarities in terms of its oppressive nature and lack of individual freedom.

The story follows Kira, a young girl with a physical disability, who lives in a village where people with disabilities are often left to die. However, Kira is spared due to her exceptional talent as a weaver. She is taken in by the Council of Guardians, who provide her with a workshop and task her with the job of restoring a ceremonial robe that is said to have magical properties.

As Kira works on the robe, she uncovers secrets about the history and governance of her society, including the role of the Council of Guardians and the true purpose of the robe. She also befriends a boy named Thomas, who is a talented woodcarver and helps her to uncover the truth.

Throughout the novel, Lowry explores themes of power, conformity, and the importance of individuality. She also delves into issues of class and discrimination, as Kira and Thomas come to understand the harsh realities of their society and seek to make a change for the better.

Overall, “Gathering Blue” is a thought-provoking and engaging read that will appeal to fans of dystopian fiction and readers interested in exploring complex social issues through the lens of young adult literature.
