Title: Son

Author: Lois Lowry

Genre: Fantasy/Dystopian/YA

Rating: *****

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. She goes to live with the other birth-mothers and receives training. She is told that giving birth doesn’t hurt, and reassured that everything will go well. After a short medical operation, she becomes pregnant with the first of three children she will supposedly bear for her community.
