Messenger by Lois Lowry is pretty much the sequel to The Giver, it takes place 7 years after the orginal events and includes the baby, Jonas and Gabriel. Also there are some references to The Giver in Gathering Blue, also by Lowry. Both books are similar and are very good as well.
hmmm never read that one, gotta get on that, thanks

For school, I have to read Bridges at Toko-Ri, and Forbidden City.
The Bridges at Toko-Ri is a very good book. I'm about half-way done with Forbidden City, and it is also good.
Forbidden City: From School Library Journal Grade 6-12-- Alex, 17-year-old war aficionado and son of a Canadian cameraman, accompanies his father to China and becomes enmeshed in the Tiananmen incident of 1989. He gets separated from his father, is befriended by some students, witnesses a good deal of the massacre, and is finally smuggled out by a student who pays for his liberation with her life. This is a blood-and-thunder story, and Bell tells it with gusto. Incidents are piled on one another, background descriptions are very convincing, and at times readers will almost feel they are there. All this amounts to an incredibly compelling novel. Curiously, when the protagonist is not in China, he becomes somewhat one-dimensional. The beginning is a tad contrived to lead to the real meat of the novel, and the ending is pat beyond common decency (in a grand, melodramatic scene, Alex destroys all his war toys back in comfy surburban Toronto). Yet the preponderant part of this novel is marvelously realized, partially from the immediacy of using first-person narration, partially from telling vignettes that really bring the time, place, and situation to life in a most memorable way. There is also a certain ring of truth about some elements of the story that resonates long after putting this novel down. In spite of the flaws, this is an excellent tale, well told, and a historical novel of note. --John Philbrook, San Francisco Public Library
