Summary
Lois Lowry's The Giver centers on twelve-year-old Jonas, who lives in a seemingly ideal world.

The Giver is the first in the trilogy of books that includes Gathering Blue and The Messenger.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 7^-9. Lowry's simple, powerful prose creates an anti-utopian world where the lack of hardship, war, and poverty only covers the citizens' deeper lack of freedom. A Booklist Editors' Choice and Newbery Medal Winner."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Winner of the 1994 Newbery Medal, this thought-provoking novel centers on a 12-year-old boy's gradual disillusionment with an outwardly utopian futuristic society; in a starred review, PW said, ``Lowry is once again in top form... unwinding a tale fit for the most adventurous readers.''
