The Giver by Lois Lowry

Goodreads Summary: Jonas's world is perfect. Everything is under control. There is no war or fear or pain. There are no choices. Every person is assigned a role in the Community. When Jonas turns twelve, he is singled out to receive special training from The Giver. The Giver alone holds the memories of the true pain and pleasure of life. Now, it is time for Jonas to receive the truth. There is no turning back.

My Take:  The Giver is a book that I would recommend everyone to read at least once in their lifetime.

I agree - everyone should read this at least once! I first read it as a teen and it completely changed the way I looked at things. Also, it hooked me on Dystopians ;p
