The Giver

Lois Lowry by Jaylin Cruz

Book Summary

This book describes people that are organized in a comunitee that has no color, no pain, nor emotions. Everything changes after a boy named Jonas becomes the new receiver. People do not know how pain feels or have emotions. Jonas on the other hand, gets memories of pain, color, and emotions. Jonas always feels lonely up until the moment he planned to run away from the comunitee.


Jonas is the new receiver. He is curious about everything he sees. Jonas felt lonely when he got more memories because no one knew pain or colors or emotions like he did. Jonas decided to run away from the comunitee with Gabe so that they would not have to bear with being in the comunitee anymore.
