Lois Lowry 1993 192p MMPB
Jonas’s world is perfect. Everything is under control. There is no war or fear of pain. There are no choices. Every person is assigned a role in the community, and when Jonas turns 12 he is sent to train under The Giver. The Giver alone holds the memories of the community, the true pain and pleasure of life. Now, it is time for Jonas to receive the truth. There is no turning back.
