WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Jonas lives in a carefully constructed community of "sameness," where individuality is discouraged, personal choice is obsolete, and feelings like pain and fear - and love - do not exist. But when Jonas turns 12 and begins training as the new Receiver of Memory, he soon discovers the many contradictions of his own supposedly perfect world. Gently guided by The Giver, who shares bittersweet recollections of a long-forgotten way of life, Jonas grows determined to regain power over his own destiny. Based on the Newbery Medal-winning novel by Lois Lowry, this remarkable story is recommended for ages 9 and up (4th - 8th grades).
