Twelve-year-old Jonas lives in a seemingly ideal world. Not until he is given his life assignment as the Receiver does he begin to understand the dark secrets behind this fragile community.

I decided not to change my star rating of this book. I was conflicted about it, but I think nostalgia played a part. I did really enjoy re-reading this book. I found myself more frustrated this time by the ending though. However, I have never read the rest of the series, so that might be my fault. I still really enjoyed the message of this book and think it should be a required read for all. In a lot of ways, it is timeless.
