Hi, i am the giver.
Jones is a boy that is very apprehensive about his Ceremony of 12. The Ceremony of 12 is where he will receive his assignment, but he doesn't know he will be selected to be the next receiver. Jones was watched by The Elders and they leaned that can "see beyond."
At the Ceremony of 12 Jones was skip over at first he was afraid that they had made a mistake. Then as they came to a end they announced that he had been selected to be the new receiver. He stood on stage as he saw the people audience face expression change.
I know it hurts,but it will be okay.
Jones goes to the first day of training to become the new receiver. He meets the givers receptionist, and she tell him to go in when he enter the giver tells Jones to sit down in a chair. Jones wants to ask many questions but he dose not instead he talks to the giver about how the experience is going to be
It will be okay Gabe, I promise.
As Jones keeps his training he receives more and more memories everyday but not good all good memories. He begins to feel pain of war and hard tines in the past.
One day Jones remembered that his father would be taking a pair of twins for one of them to be released because twin are not allowed if they look alike. He watches his father stick a shot in baby that's is being released when he puts it in he sees the baby become stiff. And he realizes that it means killing. So the giver and Jones make a plan for Jones to escape so the people can get the memories.
We Jones goes home his father told Jones that Gabe will be released because he had not slept through the night at the Nurturer Center. So Jones decides the he is going take him with him. They escape and have to go through starvation, weather changes, hiding, and much more. Jones has to walk up a steep hill when they find a sledded and go down it and goes off yo else where.
