The Giver by Lois Lowry
If you haven't read this book yet, you should really read it now. This book is really confusing and hard to explain, its just something you have to read. I think the writing is written to actually confuse you while your reading, not that the writing is bad, its amazing. Before I read this book, I always wished for a life without pain, feeling, war, and just to have peace in the world. After reading this book you seriously question why you ever thought that to begin with. This is one of the best dystopian novels I've read. I know I didn't really describe this book well enough, but it's just so hard to. Everyone really needs to read this, so here's a quick synopsis.
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.
