The giver starts in late november, and we meet a young 12-year-old, called Jonas who lives in a Utopian society . He lives with his parents and his sister Lilly. The utopian comunity is ruled by the committee of the Elders. Everyone is happy and everything works perfectly. There are only positive relationships and all seems harmonious.
Conflict Jonas is about to became an adult and he's invited to the ceremony of the Twelves where each boy's and girl's job is decided by bthe elders because they have no choice and they can't decide for their future . However jonas is indecided and he doesen't know what job he will be given.
