Journal Entry 1 by Adia415 from Cleves, Ohio USA on Wednesday, June 28, 2006
I read this for a class on young adult literature. I thought it was very interesting and thought-provoking, and honestly, a little scary. I think it would be a great novel to generate class discussion on a variety of topics.

I'm keeping it for my classroom.

Journal Entry 2 by TheClassShelf from Cincinnati, Ohio USA on Thursday, July 06, 2006
The book is now part of my middle school classroom collection.

From the back cover:

"Jonas's world is perfect. Everything is under control. There is no war or fear or pain. There are no choices. Every person is assigned a role in the community.

When Jonas turns twelve, he is singled out to receive special training from The Giver. The Giver alone holds the memories of the true pain and pleasure of life. Now it's time for Jonas to receive the truth. There is no turning back."
