It was a perfect community. Jonas was part of that community. There was a ceremony of December that Jonas was nervous for. It was a ceremony for jobs for the twelves. Jonas was a 11. He had his mother, father, and sister.
When it his ceremony they skipped him because he was the next reciever. He was with the Giver and recieved memories. His first memory was him sleding down a hill. He continues the training with him.
Jonas begins to see more colors while training with the giver. He is shown so many memories. He has begun to think that its not fair that him and the giver have to keep all of the memories.They also agree that somethng has to be done.
He and the giver come up with a plan to fix there problem. They started a plan for Jonas to leave and not return. He had to see beyond their community. He had to escape.
Jonas escapes and took food with him to survive. Though he did change the plan a bit. He took Gabriel with him. He was going to get released so Jonas had to take him.
