This was the conclusion to The Giver and Gathering Blue. It picks up about 7 years after the end of the Giver and 6 years after the end of Gathering Blue. Matty (Matt in Gatherin Blue) has found a happy life for himself in Village with Kira's father and is realizing that he has the power to heal things, at great cost to himself. He also finds out that those in Village are trading their souls (or deepest self) for material things which is changing the tenor of the place he has grown to love. When Village votes to close their borders, Leader (the main character from The Giver) sends him on a mission to put up notices about the vote. Matty also has another mission...to bring Kira to her father before the borders close. The ending of this book was disappointing but overall a good book.
