Setting
  • The story The Giver by Lois Lowry, the setting
    takes place in a utopia that is cut off from most
    of the outside world. This utopia has many rules
    and customs. There are jobs that get assigned
    from what you are good at. Some jobs are
    Nurturer, Speaker, and Birthmother. A birthmother
    is someone who relaxes for only 3 years and then
    has to do hard labor for the rest of their life.

Characters
  • Father Father of Lily and Jonas, who is a
    Nurturer.
  • Mother Nurturer as well, helps the father.
  • Gabriel A little girl with the same eye color
    as Jonas, which is rare.

Jonas
  • An Eleven-year-old who is about to turn a twelve.
    He is selected to become the next Receiver of
    Memory in the Community. Jonas, who has pale
    eyes, which is rare in the Community, has a gift
    to see beyond.

Lily
  • Jonas's sister, though they do not have the same
    birth parents. Children are taken away from their
    birthmothers and given to the Nurturing Center
    for the first year of their lives before they are
    given to an adult couple. An adult couple may
    apply for up to two children and it can take
    years for the Committee of Elders to determine a
    suitable match by the Committee of Elders. Lily
    is a Seven who will become an Eight when Jonas
    becomes a Twelve.
