it was amazing

I'm a new Lois Lowry fan! I've had so many people give so many different opinions on this book that I put off reading it for a long time. I'm sorry I did. It is well and thoughtfully written and gives one a lot to think about. I wish the ending was tied up in a pretty little bow, but I felt like it left me hanging. So, I ordered the next 2 books in this trio, hoping that by the 3rd one, things will come together. While the ending was my only complaint, it isn't a big one. I highly recommend this book.

Alisa Julie,
I read this book about 6 months ago, and I have to admit it was too sad for me. I thought it had a great message to it, but it was too sad.
