Gossamer: Reviewed

Author:Lois Lowry
Reading Level (Conceptual):Children 12 and up
Reading Level (Vocabulary):Children 8 and up
Year of publication:2006

Delicate story about how the community of ideas and the community of people can cooperate to save a ravaged young life.

A single scene, reiterated a few times, of violent child and wife abuse might be upsetting to sensitive young readers.

As in Rowan of Rin, one sub-plot in Gossamer concerns a character who attempts to contribute to the group effort, realizes that she is not the right person for the job, and requests re-assignment. Others as overwhelmed, take notice! It IS a service to your community if you realize that your contribution would be to retire.
