Author: Lois Lowry

From the two-time Newbery Medal–winning author of Number the Stars and The Giver comes a novel about how even the smallest of dreams can break through the darkest of nights.

In a haunting story by Lois Lowry that tiptoes between reality and imagination, two people—a lonely, sensitive woman and a damaged, angry boy—face their own histories and discover what they can be to one another, renewed by the strength that comes from a tiny, caring creature they will never see.

Gossamer is perfect for readers not quite ready for Lois Lowry’s Newbery Medal winner The Giver and also for readers interested in dreams, nightmares, spirits, and the dream world.
