The Giver

by Lois Lowry

Jonus has been chosen for an honor rarely given in his perfect community where there are no choices, no fear, no pain. He will receive truth - and nothing will ever be the same.

Barbara’s Notes: This story is particularly well suited for students who are not strong readers, but desire mature subject matter. Warning: Controversial! (Grades 7, 8, 9)
