Content descriptions

General Note: Companion book to: Gathering blue, Messenger, and Son.
Summary, etc.: Life in the community where Jonas lives is idyllic. Designated birthmothers produce new children, who are assigned to appropriate family units: one male, one female, to each. Citizens are assigned their partners and their jobs. No one thinks to ask questions. Everyone obeys. The community is a precisely choreographed world without conflict, inequality, divorce, unemployment, injustice...or choice. Everyone is the same. Except Jonas. Jonas is chosen for something special. He begins instruction in his life's work with a mysterious old man known only as the Giver. Gradually Jonas learns that power lies in feelings. But when his own power is put to the test - when he must try to save someone he loves - he may not be ready. Is it too soon? Or too late?--
