Dear Lois Lowry,

I wanted to write to you to thank you for The Giver. I first read it when I was in fourth grade, and I remember being struck by how different it was from the other books I was reading. It introduced me to how a book could make you think and question. 

I recently re-read it and found it still incredibly relevant and thought-provoking. I think it is a great credit to you and your talent that you were able to create such a powerful and accessible piece of literature. Thank you very much.

Best wishes,

Libby Nousen
