'But suddenly Jonas had noticed, following the path of the apple through the air with his eyes, that the piece of fruit had- well, this was the part he couldn't understand.' This is the point where Jonas realizes something strange about the apple, something he had never seen before. The reality of what was happening didn't hit until the giver told him what was going on.
The unwanted news
Gabe is getting released tomorrow.
'Its good to have some volunteers here today, we just celebrated a release this morning.' In this part of the book, Jonas offers to help out and get a job. He then helps out some people in the bathhouse with his friend, Asher.
The big escape
Everything is going to be alright. It's for the best.
At this special naming, the community performed the brief Murmur of replacement Ceremony, repeating the name for the first time since the loss.
The end of a new beginning
Why do I feel like this? Why do I seem different?
'we obviously had to make the decision. Even I voted for Gabe's release.' 'It's bye bye to you Gabe in the morning.' now since Jonas knows what 'release' really is, he finds out his baby brother is going to get killed. the rest of the family have no idea what is actually going to happen.
Jonas reached the opposite side of the river, stopped briefly and looked back. The community where his entire life had been lived lay behind him now. He takes Gabe and escapes the community to save Gabe's life. He continues to break the community rules.
As Gabe And Jonas reach the top of the hill after this long, hard journey Jonas starts to fill happy again. He thinks of all the good memories and doesn't remember anything negative. Slowly he is slipping away, but he doesn't know that. Is this the end of his life?
