by Lois Lowry

 

December is the time of the annual Ceremony at which each twelve-year-old receives a life assignment determined by the Elders. Jonas watches his friend Fiona named Caretaker of the Old and his cheerful pal Asher labeled teh Assistant Director of Recreation. But Jonas has been chosen for somthing special. When his selection leads him to an unnamed man-the man called only the Giver-he begins to sense the dark secrets taht underlie the fragile perfection of his world.

Given his lifetime assignment at the Ceremony of Twelve, Jonas becomes the receiver of memories shared by only one other in his community and discovers the terrible truth about the society in which he lives.
