Wow, this was an amazing book! Lowry takes a look at what life would be like if all risk were removed from life, and skillfully addresses issues such as euthanasia and abortion without sounding preachy. This is not the kind of book you throw at your child, though--an upper-middle school child may be ready, but read it together!
