KDL Description:

The Giver
October 18–27

“The Community” is a perfect place where pain and strife have been eliminated by the suppression of emotions. When Jonas is chosen to become the “Receiver of Memory,” he begins to question the so-called utopia in which he has been raised.

Amazon Description:

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. When Jonas turns 12 he is singled out to receive special training from The Giver. The Giver alone holds the memories of the true pain and pleasure of life. Now, it is time for Jonas to receive the truth. There is no turning back.
