Jonas lives in a post-apocalyptic world of conformity in which individuals do not decide anything, and everyone always follows the rules. When you turn twelve, you are assigned a job by the elders. However, Jonas is skipped over at the ceremony and then learns he has a special position as the Receiver of Memory. This special job allows Jonas to finally experience the emotion that is lacking in his world as he learns about art, music, love, and hate. His experience will forever alter the way he views his community and lead to a daring adventure that goes against everything he grew up believing.
