    December is the time of the annual Ceremony at which each twelve-year-old receives a life assignment determined by the Elders. Jonas watches his friend Fiona named Caretaker of the Old and his cheerful pal Asher labeled the Assistant Director of Recreation. But Jonas has been chosen for something special. When his selection leads him to an unnamed man, the man called only the Giver, he begins to sense the dark secrets that underlie the fragile perfection of his world.

    Nikki says: "This guy's mouth makes some serious noises..."
    "NOT 4 CHILDREN"
    Overall

    Love no longer exists, families no longer exist. The book deals with genicide, suicide, and behavioral control thru medication.

    As for the story itself, it lacked in explanation. Every page left you asking how or why.
