      I'll be honest...this was not my favorite book. I really liked The Giver, and was disappointed when this book was confusing and kind of boring. After Kira's mother's death, Kira is sad. Her whole house has been burned down because of a death, which is something they do when someone dies. Now Kira is left to live for herself. Because of being physically disabled since birth, Kira faces many discrimages and hardships that society gives her. Kira has been told to leave her community, to live with Council Edifice. Mystified, Kira finds out that she must weave for the powerful Guardians. Kira faces the questions and hopes to finds answers. Happy reading!

        I respectfully disagree. This was a phenomenal book, arguably the best in the quartet. Just because something is difficult to understand doesn't make it bad or not worthwhile. Happy reading! -sirireads

        I like this book a lot but when I found out the main character had changed, I was discouraged from reading this book. (That happened before I started reading the book.)
