Hello my name is Jonas, and I am an eleven. I am soon going to be a twelve and finally stop having to volunteer and get assigned my assignment that we have for life.
This is my family unit, every family unit has one boy one girl and two parents that were arranged. Each year until you get to be twelve you earn new things at the ceremony in December.
Omg, I cant belive my name was skipped
What on earth is the recever of memory?
It is a very imortent honor but it will not be without a lot of pain, You must be brave to be the recever.
You have been selected to become the new receiver of memory
I will not go home, my fathers is murderer! Why do we have to keep all of the memory's to ourselves, we should share them!!!
You get introduced to the family and learn all about the community and the strange rules that come along with living in the community.
Its so cold out here I just want to lie down and sleep.
Jonas is called up onto the stage and told he has not been assigned but selected, at this point Jonas is very confused. The leader explains the job to him and the audience briefly, after this he starts the job and begins to receive painful memory's.
We learn the truth about release and how they actually kill people that they release and Jonas begins to make plans to run away to "Elsewhere" and slowly return all memory to the people of the community.
There might be a way for that to happen
Jonas leaves the community and takes his baby brother(who would have been put down) with him. In the process he almost freezes to death walking through the cold winter to find elsewhere. He also must evade planes and find food.
I have to keep going for Gabreil and for the whole community.
Jonas finds a sled on top of a hill when he is very close to death. He sleds down and finds himself in elsewhere. The people have been expecting him and he hears them singing. He is not sure but he thinks he hears singing coming from his old community off in the distance.
