Adapted by Eric Coble from the Newbery Award-winning book by Lois Lowry. Jonas is about to turn 12, and is chosen for special training from the Giver--to receive and keep the memories of the community... Is his world really perfect?

In Jonas’ world, there is no war or fear or pain. There are also no choices. At 12, he is assigned to work with the “Giver” and receive all the memories of real pain and real joy. Now Jonas will learn the truth about life — and the hypocrisy of his utopian world. Can Jonas and the Giver unite to change their world forever?
