By Lowry, Lois
It's a perfect world, where everything looks right. But ugly truths lie beneath! Imagine a world without poverty, war or pain. A world where everything is comfortable and familiar - a world where everything is the same. No colour, no music. In such a world, Jonas is selected to b...e the next Receiver of Memory and is apprenticed to the Giver, an old man who stores memories from the Community's past.
