A boy named Jonas lives in a community where theres no choice, for example you get assinged jobs or get givin babies but Jonas is different as well Jonas' familly is givin a baby named Gabrielle but he wil get released if he is not well behaved.
while in the ceremony of the twelve Jonas' number gets missed after the cheif elder says that Jonas was not assingned he was selected as the receiver of memory.
Jonas goes to his first day of training with the Giver as he wants Jonas to call him. What the Giver does is he puis his hand on Jonas' back and it sends him a memory of the old days or the futur.
As time goes along Jonas starts to see colour because of the memories the Giver gave to Jonas as well as learning all about the old community and how it changed.
Jonas watches the release of the lighter weighted twin because there can not be twins in the community but Jonas notices that getting released is the same thing as getting killed and the worst part was that it was his dad who did it.
It was anounced that Gabe would get released because he was not ablke to handle himself, but jonas was determind to not let that happen so he and the Giver made a plan, Jonas would sneak out at midnight and take his dads bike then Jonas and Gabe would just ride until they find something.
