Dystopian has become an interesting genre to read. Here’s an interesting review of Son by Lois Lowry. Reblogging on Archer’s Aim!
Author: Lois Lowry
Review: Claire, a birth-mother in the dystopian world of the Giver, forms an attachment to her son that her society never intended for her to have, and which leads her to embark on a quest of over ten years to find him. Claire is chosen at the age of twelve to become a birth-mother. It is not particularly a surprise; most people’s career assignment fits what they have become during their first twelve years of life.

After a short medical operation, she becomes pregnant with the first of three children she will supposedly bear for her community.
