Title: The Giver

The Giver
  • By Lois Lowry

The Giver Summary
  • Lois Lowry's The Giver tells the story of Jonas,
    who lives in a futuristic society and who, until
    the age of twelve, has led a peaceful and normal,
    albeit regulated, life. Jonas has two parents, a
    mother who is happily employed at the Department
    of Justice, and a father who is happily employed
    as a Nurturer. He occasionally quarrels with his
    younger sister Lily, and he enjoys riding his
    bicycle, visiting with his friends Asher and
    Fiona, and musing about his future. In Jonas's
    world, everything (from an individual's desire,
    to the weather, to a person's career) is
    regulated. The community's rulers see to it, for
    example, that every member of this nameless,
    timeless community occupies a productive role in
    the society. The plot of The Giver develops out
    of Jonas's changing perceptions towards his
    community after he is selected to be the Receiver
    of Memory and discovers that nothing about his
    idyllic community is what it seems...

    when his sister, Lily is given the ability to get
    a volunteer job.
