Her father called her chicken fluff because of her hair. She was smart and got straight A's. Her mom was also in the Daughters of Eve. She would twitch a lot when she was nervous.

None of us savors the warmth of sunshine or the beauty of snow the way Jonas does. Perhaps we need the darkness of the night to appreciate the brightness of the moon. Few books, especially those meant for children, are as deep as this one. The fact that the book ends on a hopeful note should only add to its virtue. The Giver helps us realise why our world, with all its imperfections, is beautiful. Works Cited The Giver, Lois Lowry
