In this book, the Giver, an old man gives all the memories of a world such as
ours to a boy named Jonah. In this world there is no color, love, or twins, and
the babies and children are bred by special people who have the job of
birthmother. They then are adopted away. Everybody in the town has a special but
awkward job. The giver tells Jonah of a place such as our normal world. After

Jonah learns of the world before, he becomes anxious to escape and discover if
their is a color outside world in which there is love, and normal families. The
more visions that Jonah receives, the more painful they become. He also begins
to become more and more anxious about discovering what is beyond his dull and
controlled town. He also soon begins to have strange dreams of bathing one of
his "girl" friends naked, in a bathtub. His parents then tell them to
take certain pills to prevent these dreams, he does not because of his anxiety
to find out what else there is in the world. The giver later tells Jonah how

Jonah's and his own dinner, breakfast, and everything else that they do is
monitored and controlled. The Giver later gives Jonah his consent to escape
their town to go search for a normal and happier world. Jonah kidnaps his baby
brother who's twin gets killed by Jonah's dad. Him and the baby escape out the
town into a normal world at the end of the book. The rest of the book, is about
the visions that Jonah has, and explains how the "Giver," is the
keeper of memories from the village from hundreds of years ago. The ending of
the book is somewhat uncertain, since you don't know if Jonah makes it out of a
desert into a new, better world, or if the whole thing is a mirage, to Jonah.
