Lois Lowry

This is a companion book to the Giver by Lois Lowry. I had read the Giver years ago but remembered what it was about. In Son a young woman becomes a birthmother and has to give away her baby. She locates him in a nursery and spends the rest of her life trying to connect with him. The book reminds me of the Hunger Games with the type of civilization the people are living in and used to. When Claire gets away, she has another type of life and it takes her a while to get used to the 'elsewhere' which is our type of living. Very interesting Science Fiction book and worth reading.
