The Giver by Lois Lowry

giver   The Giver is about a kid named Jonas who lives in a perfectly laid-out community where there are no choices and your life is chosen not by you, but by the elders of the city.    In this community that Jonas lives in once you become age 12 you start your training for a field of work that was chosen for you by the elders of the community.  Jonas gets picked for an honor that doesn’t come very often – he gets chosen the Receiver of Memory.  The whole point of the Receiver of Memory is that he holds all the memories for the community. Throughout the book you see Jonas before and after his training.  This book overall is really good and I highly recommend it to anyone that just wants something good to read. It is more focused toward any teenager and is a really easy book to read and understand.  This is just one of those books that you have to keep reading because you want to know more and want to keep finding out what happens to Jonas.
