Jonas Has been selected to be the Receiver of Memory!
Jonas is ready to become a twelve in December. He has a mixture of being scared, and being excited. So are his closest friends, Asher and Fiona. But Jonas isn't prepared for what assignment he'll get.....
Jonas and his family, (Father isn't there yet) are having a celebration for Jonas because his Ceremony is tomorrow and he's very scared. Jonas couldn't get sleep because he too focused on his assignment. He think's to himself that he doesn't know what's to come.
The day has came, it's finally the Ceremony of twelves and now Jonas isn't scared of much now. Jonas was skipped, but after everyone received their assignment the Chief of Elders announced that she didn't make a mistake. ¨Jonas is our new Receiver of Memory! He has all of the qualities for this job! And it is the most respected!¨
Jonas has his first training session today, he also meets the old receiver and he calls himself, ¨The Giver.¨ The giver transmits the first memory. The memory is about Jonas on a sled at the top of snowy hill. But the second time he's on a hill, it's with what he feared, pain.
After all of Jonas's training and memory's Jonas says that he wouldn't go home. The Giver and Jonas make a plan to run away from the community, but the Giver wouldn't go. So when Jonas get's home he wait's until midnight before he leaves. He takes his bike, food, and Gabriel. He doesn't stop on his bike, he keeps going until daylight. Then Finally he sees his destination, a snowy hill with a sled at the top. Jonas and Gabe ride into the light.
