    Description"The Giver, " the 1994 Newbery Medal winner, has become one of the most influential novels of our time. The haunting story centers on twelve-year-old Jonas, who lives in a seemingly ideal, if colorless, world of conformity and contentment. Not until he is given his life assignment as the Receiver of Memory does he begin to understand the dark, complex secrets behind his fragile community. Lois Lowry has written three companion novels to "The Giver, "including "Gathering Blue, Messenger, " and "Son."

    Review quote
    "A powerful and provocative novel"--"The New York Times" "Wrought with admirable skill -- the emptiness and menace underlying this Utopia emerge step by inexorable step: a richly provocative novel."--"Kirkus", starred review"Lowry is once again in top form raising many questions while answering few, and unwinding a tale fit for the most adventurous readers."--"Publishers Weekly", starred review"The simplicity and directness of Lowry's writing force readers to grapple with their own thoughts."-- "Booklist", starred review "The theme of balancing the values of freedom and security is beautifully presented."-- "The Horn Book Magazine", starred review
