Description

Developed into a major motion picture, Lois Lowry's 1994 Newbery Medal-winning tale has become one of the most influential novels of our time. The haunting story centers on Jonas who lives in a seemingly ideal, if colorless, world of conformity and contentment. Not until he is given his life assignment as the Receiver of Memory does he begin to understand the dark, complex secrets behind his fragile community. This movie tie-in edition features cover art from the movie andexclusive Q&A with members of the cast, including Taylor Swift, Brenton Thwaites and Cameron Monaghan.
