The Giver, winner of the 1994 Newbery Award, is an interesting, fairly easy read, with significant topics for discussion, such as whether sameness is good and suffering is bad and how tradition can be used as a controlling mechanism in society. Students will be enthralled as they watch Jonas, the protagonist, question his role as the new Receiver of Memory in a utopian world in which there is no poverty, crime, or unemployment. 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 assigned role.
