Kira is a gifted weaver and is given a task that no other community member can do. While her talent keeps her alive and brings certain privileges, Kira soon realizes she is surrounded by many mysteries and secrets. No one must know of her plans to uncover the truth about her world and see what places exist beyond.

I'm Kira too!!!!!!
At first (many years ago) I only read this book because the main character and I had the same name, Kira. Now however I read it because it is an amazing book! Lois Lowry is a genius and I am so glad itunes is finally offering the audiobook. The Giver and The Messenger are also amazing books. If you read them all you'll be able to see that they are all related.
Best Book Ever!!!
