Gabriel M. Guerrero writes the following about The Giver :
The Giver
This book is about a boy who's name is Jonas. And about a baby boy named Gabe. And the Giver. The main character of this story is Jonas. Jonas is a 12 who is selected to be the Reciever of Memories. The Reciever of memory's job is to hold all the memories of the past. But not all the memories he's gotten are not good. Some times he get's memories of poor , hunger , pain , war and some of the good memories he get's are being on the beach sleding and ect. When Jonas is in traning Jonas asked well what happen's when you are in realease? Are they really going to realease you because of your age? Yes the Giver said. Well what happens in realease. And the giver said ," Do you see that speaker just say let me see the tape of this mornings realease. So he does and they put in the movie and sense your only aloud to have one boy and one girl. the birth mothers had two twin boys and the lightest one they will realease. And when they realease the would give you a shot in the biggest part of your vain and youll die and thell put you in a plastic container and through you away. And Jonas didnt want to go home that night because his dad kills the babies. Another main character is the babie Gabe. abe was going to be realeased and he did not want that to happen so he and Jonas left the community. And Jonas on cold days on there way to the human world would give Gabe the memory of warmth and being on a beach.

The last main character is the Giver. The Giver is the one who told Jonas to leave the community and he is the one who gives him the memories.

I think this is a good book because the y tell about life and you should read this because its sad.
