The ceromony of twelve finally came and Jonas was exicted. Everyone was being given their jobs but they skipped Jonas, he got worried. At the end of ceromony Jonas was chosen as the new reciever but he was scared of what was to come with it.
The Giver and Jonas were talking about how they wanted to change things around the community and how it would affect them all. They then came up with a plan for Jonas to leave the community and the memories would be left behind. The Giver would stay and help community control them hoping that they would change things.
Jonas escaped from the community at night, like him and the giver planned, successfully and took Gabe with him.
