This book is very interesting. And by that, I mean how weird it would be if someone just chose our lives for us. Like, who are we going to be. Jonas becomes a Receiver. Now keep in mind, this world is black and white and kids get sorted to random families. I KNOW!! SO WEIRD!! But anyway, Jonas is the only one that knows the true meaning of life, because after all he is the Receiver of his community. Read it, you'll definitely know what I'm talking about.
