The Giver

The Giver  - Lois Lowry The first chapters were a little disorienting for me but the strange concepts nicely unfolds as the book progresses. In some ways this book is like 1984 for kids with a happy ending, though Ms. Lowry has her own points to make about what it means to be human. (The movie Pleasantville also springs to mind)

I did wonder if this book would be even better if it was written for adults instead "YA", but if that was the case kids would be deprived of one of the best YA books ever, and be left with endless drivel about dating spineless vampires.
