AP Reading List – Book-A-Day: The Giver

the-giverAuthor: Lois Lowry

Category:  fiction

What they’re saying in the Prepwise staff room:

Taylor: “This is also a piece of dystopian literature, in which the point of the whole society is “sameness.” When the main character is chosen to be the new Receiver of Dreams, he realizes how horrible the society actually is. He then plans to change the society by removing “sameness.” This book is very interesting as it shows to what lengths a young boy will go to change his society. Also, it shows what would happen if we all were the same. There is also a movie coming out later this year.”
