Lois Lowry’s The Giver has become one of the most influential novels of our time.
Jonas lives in a seemingly ideal, if colorless, world of conformity and contentment. Not until he is given his life assignment as the Receiver of Memory does he begin to understand the dark, complex secrets behind his fragile community. Through this astonishing and moving adaptation, Jonas will discover what it means to grow up, to grow wise, and to take control of your own destiny.
