Lois Lowry has won two Newbery Medals, the Boston Globe-Horn Book Award, the Dorothy Canfield Fisher Award, the California Young Reader Medal and the Mark Twain Award. Her most popular book to date, “The Giver” (the winner of the 1994 Newbery Medal), is the quintessential dystopian novel that has sold more than 10 million copies worldwide and has been on middle school reading lists in Australia, Canada and the United States for decades.
Twelve-year-old Jonas lives in a perfect world of sameness, a world where there is no privacy, suffering, hunger, war, color, music or love. When he is assigned to his new job as the Receiver of Memory, singled out to receive specialized training from The Giver, his life changes -- forever. The memories he is given induce, for the first time in his life, genuine feelings of happiness and love, as well as pain and sorrow. Jonas must face the ultimate dilemma: to pursue a world of both true joy and suffering, or to remain in the sameness for the rest of his life.
As a class reading set, The Giver is recommended for grades six through nine (or for those reading at a junior high school or middle school level). This young adult novel is also recommended for community reading programs, such as library-sponsored reading clubs and other educational/literary programs.
