Reviewed by Publishers Weekly Reviews (PW Reviews 1994 August #2)
Winner of the 1994 Newbery Medal, this thought-provoking novel centers on a 12-year-old boy's gradual disillusionment with an outwardly utopian futuristic society; in a starred review, PW said, ``Lowry is once again in top form... unwinding a tale fit for the most adventurous readers.'' Ages 10-up. (Sept.) Copyright 1994 Cahners Business Information.
