Gathering Blue by Lois Lowry
A book review by Faith Thompson
When Kira’s mom dies, she is left to the mercy of the Guardians. Because of her disability, she has no way to support herself. Kira is shocked to find the Guardians happy to give her a home and a job — repairing the robe that is worn every year at the Song Ceremony which relates to the world’s history. All is not as it seems, however, and Kira, her friends Thomas and Matt, and a little girl named Jo are the only ones who can figure it out.
