Jonas’ world is perfect. Everything is under control. There is no war or fear or pain. When Jonas turns twelve he is chosen to train with The Giver—the keeper of the community’s collective memories. For the first time, he experiences the feeling of love, as well as the pain of hunger, loneliness, and disease that the community has suppressed. Jonas must decide if eradicating pain is worth sacrificing joy.
