The Giver is a book I just read and I loved it. Jonahs is boy that lives in a place that has no color, love, pain, snow, sunburn, or choice. He is about to get his life assignment (his job) and they skip him! When he does get a job it is a job he has never heard of before, the receiver. He meets a man that calls himself the giver. The giver shares memories with him of pain, love, snow, and fun. Eventually he askes about the last giver chosen. He learns that she let herself be released. He does not know it yet but releasing means killing. He watches a video of his dad releasing a baby that was smaller than the other. It broke his heart. His dad told him a baby who was staying with them was going to be released so he ran away with the baby and found the sled in one of his memories. I love this book and I hope you do to.
