I think The Giver, by Lois Lowry is a different book because it has some weird content that seems to be different. I think that this is a different type of book. It seems to be interesting and a strange story of a community.
A passage from pages 1-10 that seems important is: "It was not what he was feeling now with December approaching. He searched for the right word to describe his own feeling." I think this is a clue of what the story is about because it seems mysterious. I don't understand why he is so nervous about December coming up. Also, this makes me think about what type of feeling he is talking about.
Another part that I thought was important was: "Jonas explained, "and that every adult has been through it. I know you have, Father, and you too, Mother. But it's the Ceremony that I'm apprehensive about. It's almost December." This is an example of something important in this book. It shows that Jonas is worried about something important that is going to happen to him. I think that this the main idea of the story because it has been mention a few times in this pages.
This section of The Giver reminds me of something that happened to me. One time I was having my Quince, it was a big party. I was really nervous that day and I wanted everything to be perfect. I had so much pressure gion on to get ready fro the party. After all the party come out really good.
What's probably going to happen next is that Jonas is going have a party for his birthday and maybe that is why he is nervous. Also, I think that he is like turning adult so he might be feeling akward about it.
I am looking forward to reading the rest of this book because it is something different and it has caught my attention.
