Introduction:
The book I chose for my FEU was The Giver. The Giver was published in 1993
by Lois Lowry. Lois Lowry is an American writer and is famous for her children’s books,
she has written and published over 30 children’s books. In 1996 Lois Lowry received a
Newbery Medal for one of her novels: “Number the Stars” then in 1993 she received the
same award for The Giver. A Newbery award is a medal given to the author for the most
distinguished contribution to American literature for children published by an American
publisher in the United States in English. The Giver is a novel about a boy named Jonas
who is 11 years old, his world is perfect, everything is in control and there is no war or
fear of pain. But in the novel, there are no choices, every person in the community is
assigned a role. When Jonas turns 12 years old he is singled out to receive training
from The Giver. Jonas has been selected to become the next Receiver of Memory for
the community (basically Jonas being the receiver must hold onto the society memories
and provides guidance to the elders. The Giver is the Receiver of memory and he
