Reason for Reading: I will be reading the next two books in the trilogy and wanted to re-read this first book.
First Published: 1993
Awards: Newbery Medal
It was almost December, and Jonas was beginning to be frightened.
Recommend: Highly recommended! This book was a re-read for me but I read it long enough (7-8 years) ago that I didn't quite remember all the details. This is a compelling story of a dystopian society. A quick yet thought-provoking read that should be on everyone's to-be-read list. This is definately a story that makes you think and will stay with me.
