The Giver Project
By Kitana Hyson
Jonas lives in a world where there are big time rules and no one thinks for themselves. Everything is the same and there is no music, color, or pain. Jonas is given the job as the Receiver of Memory, which is a really big deal. Jonas goes to see the Giver and begins to learn about the way things used to be, like the way our world is now. The more Jonas learns about having choices and the bad things that happen in his world, the more he wants to escape. Finally, with the help of the Giver, Jonas leaves elsewhere, taking his baby brother, Gabe, with him. The story is based on Jonas's perspective.
Three Other Important Characters
The Giver is the one who teaches Jonas throughout the story. He is patient, calm, and wise. He is also able to deal with strong feelings of others and is very strong emotionally.He is ready to help the entire community absorb the memories when Jonas leaves elsewhere.
Fiona is one of Jonas's friends. She has red hair, which only Jonas can see, and works as a Caretaker in the House of the Old. She is mild-mannered (meaning gentle) and patient. Jonas's first time experiencing "stirrings" was in a dream he had about Fiona.
Jonas's father brings home Gabriel, a "newchild", and has trouble sleeping at night unless Jonas puts him to sleep with nice memories. Jonas becomes attached to him more and more. To save Gabriel, Jonas leaves with him elsewhere or else Gabriel would have been killed.
"There could be love," Jonas whispered"

3. Why did Jonas leave with Gabriel elsewhere?
Rating and Liked/Disliked
What I liked about the story was that it was uncommon and strange in a way.
What I disliked was that it made no sense and was unrealistic/fictional. In my opinion if it was something more relatable it would have made more sense to me.
