The book, The Giver, is about a boy named Jonas who lives in a community where everyone is alike. The Giver is science fiction. It is part of the Giver Quartet and is an easy read. Lois Lowry, the author of The Giver, has won 2 Newberry Medals and is world-famous. This book is geared towards anyone that can read. Jonas, the Giver to be, is questioning the leadership in his community. Jonas is the main character. Jonas is interesting because he cannot see color or hear music. The Giver is set in the future. The setting is very clear, and the author draws me into the story by using clear, descriptive language. Other readers would love this book. Other books by Lois Lowry are just like this. The Giver is for entertainment. I love this book. Five stars. -annaleeliz
