  • That wasn't so bad!?!
  • Jonas is a normal 11 year old boy that is about to be an adult, who lives in a strange community that values sameness. The people who live in the community feel no pain. Only Happiness. They are closely watched and could not break any rules. If they break rules 3 times in a life time, they get Released.
  • Climax
  • Your arm is too tiny-wini, so I have to use a vin on your forehead.
  • There is a ceremony when the children turn 12 and get assigned with jobs. When the Head of School call up the children's names to assign jobs, she skipped Jonas! Jonas is called the last and assigned the new Receiver of Memory.
  • Climax
  • Jonas meets 'the Giver', an old man who holds the whole worlds memories. He will pass these memories to Jonas, some are pleasant and some are very unpleasant.
  • Falling Action & Resolution
  • Jonas has been training as the receiver. He has access to a lot of things other people will never have. When he sees his dad performing the ceremony of "release" and he realises it means killing. His dad without the memories does not know this.
  • Jonas realises that the community don't know many bad things happening without their memories. He understands that the community is not what he is told to be. He decides to escape.
  • When Jonas finds out his dad is going to 'Release' the baby Gabe, a baby his father has been taking care of, he escapes with baby Gate. In the end, Jonas and Gabe escaped and made it out alive. Sure they experienced not enough shelter, starvation, and fear. But they had each other, and their love.
