The Giver
In a future society called The Community, pain, war and disease have been eradicated, as have individuality and free will. When a teenager named Jonas learns the truth about the real world, he must decide whether to reveal all or remain quiet.

Evie Totty: “It ruled.”

Oh my gosh, I went into this with very low expectations. I just read the book (in a day) this past week and since then realized they changed the book (somewhat) giving some characters bigger roles.

The changes (including graduation being moved from 12 to 18) enhanced the story in my opinion. At one point near the end I even began to tear up and chills went through my body. I encourage fans of the book to see it for sure
