Jonas

Jonas is a 12 year old (in the book) who has been chosen to be the next receiver of memories . One of the challenges that he faces is that he learns secret information about his society, and that he realizes that his people are doing terrible things in order to keep everyone comfortable. He is also faced with the problem of not being able to tell anybody anything which makes him feel like he does not fit in.
