Gathering Blue

by Lois Lowry

is about a girl named Kira who was born with a twisted leg. Left orphaned
after her mother dies, she is now faced with a problem. Her community does not
respect disabilities or weaknesses. They will kick her out into the forest  to be eaten by the beasts if she does not
prove she can work hard. When she is summoned by the council guardians, Kira is
sure she might have to fight for her life, but 
the council has other plans. Faced with new responsibilities, Kira also
learns a secret about the council guardians that threatens the freedom of Kira
and her friends. A mystery unfolds and Kira is determined to figure it out.

I love this book!

And for anyone who wonders, it's the sequel to The Giver. The book after it is Messesnger. You don't have to read them in order, though.

This was a pretty good book.

It is sort of related to The Giver
