Messenger (The Giver, #3)
by Lois Lowry
by Lois Lowry
This is the third book of The Giver Series. I absolutely loved every minute of this book. I never got bore and could not put it down! The book starts off with Matty and his life at the Village. He was an outsider but they welcomed him 7 years ago and he is now a good, strong, good mannered young man. We find out he has a special gift. The gift to heal. Every person gets a name, the Leader assigns them. And Matty can't wait to get his, he wants it to be Messenger since he IS the Messenger and knows Forest very well. Unfortunately, things get complicated and people start trading their personalities for material goods. This causes a change in everyone, and for the worse. Which changes the Village and the Forest. Matty must find the Seer's (a blind man who is like his father) daughter and bring her back before they close the Village to outsiders. The Forest starts changing and getting dangerous even to Matty. He is a accompanied by his puppy Frolic, who he once saved along with his mom from death when he was born. The way back is much harder though, and Matty must choose between saving the others or giving into the Forest. At last he gets his true name, Healer.
