by Lois Lowry

The Giver, a well praised and well written book, is about a boy named Jonas who realizes that his world may not be as perfect as it seems. In this supposedly idyllic society, Jonas trains with the giver, or all knower in his town. When he, and only he, is exposed to the knowledge of the past, he realizes that everything that is happening in his once called home. In an effort to protect his loved ones, and live life the way it should be, Jonas realizes that he must successfully escape this fake world and leave behind the wrong world he use to love.

I loved reading The Giver, because it has a lot of deeper meaning and hidden messages underneath the interesting plot. This book has quite a bit of social commentary as well as an interesting plot that will leave you wondering why in the end.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone and everyone, because of the well written messages laced in the outstanding plot. If you like books with depth, and interesting stories, I recommend The Giver.
