Thinking About... The Giver Movie!

So... big news! They are making a movie from the book The Giver, by Lois Lowry! I am so excited! All of you should read The Giver, it is one of my favorite books, it is very entertaining and intriguing!

Here is the book description from Barnes and Noble:


Soon to be a major motion picture, The Giver, the 1994 Newbery Medal winner, has become one of the most influential novels of our time. The haunting story centers on twelve-year-old Jonas, who lives in a seemingly ideal, if colorless, world of conformity and contentment. Not until he is given his life assignment as the Receiver of Memory does he begin to understand the dark, complex secrets behind' his fragile community. Lois Lowry has written three companion novels to The Giver, including Gathering Blue, Messenger, and Son.

Given his lifetime assignment at the Ceremony of Twelve, Jonas becomes the receiver of memories shared by only one other in his community and discovers the terrible truth about the society in which he lives.

I haven't read Gathering Blue, Messenger, or Son, yet, but I plan to.

Jonas (Brenton Thwaites) and the baby is probably Gabe.
