The Giver  The Giver

   Adapted by Eric Coble from the Newbery Award-winning book by Lois Lowry

Jonas’ world is perfect. Everything is under control and safe. There is no war or fear or pain—or free will. At the age of 12, every person is assigned a role in the community. Jonas is chosen to succeed The Giver,     the person who retains the memories of the community. Now Jonas will experience emotions and learn the truth about life—and the hypocrisy of his utopian world.
