The Giver
By Lois Lowry

?The Giver? by Lois Lowry is about a community that is monitored very closely. Everything that the people of this community do is watched and recorded. They are punished for not doing something right or by the rules, and they are rewarded when done right. There is a procedure for everything, and they must follow the procedure or be punished. There is even a specific way that they are to apologize for doing something wrong. This community lives by ?Sameness.? There is no color, the family units are not self-chosen, and they are picked by observing who would be the best mate. The two adults in the family unit must apply for children when they are ready, and they can only have two; one boy and one girl. There is a special ceremony that advances every child in the community, and at the ceremony, they give families that have applied for a child the one that the elders think would be the best child for them. When a child gets to be a twelve, he is given an assignment. This is to be the job that he or she will do for the rest of their time,
