Jonas, an empathic twelve-year-old boy, lives in a utopian world in which there is no poverty, crime, or unemployment. Selected to be the new Receiver of Memory, Jonas preserves the collective memories of humankind, including all good and bad emotions. By protecting the citizens from these powerful recollections, the Receiver helps the community maintain sameness and harmony.

As Jonas begins to receive the memories, however, he realizes the joy of being an individual, and, as a result, he begins to question his role as protector. This is an interesting, fairly easy read, with significant themes for discussion.
