This is a set of all three books.

In The Giver, Jonas is nervous about becoming a Twelve and receiving his job assignment. When he finds out that he is to be the new Receiver, who holds the memories from his community. The story begins as an interesting look at a seemingly perfect world, but becomes darker as time moves on.

The second in a disturbing trilogy, Gathering Blue takes place in a society that is the opposite of Jonas's world in The Giver. Kira is an outcast and an orphan after her mother dies. When another woman brings her to the Council, wanting her killed, the Council instead chooses her to become the Robe-threader of the Future.

In the final book, Messenger, Matty has been living with Seer since he fled from the Kira's village. Matty soon finds that the Village is changing and is closing its borders. He decides to set off to bring Kira back to Jonas with him. This is an amazing book. ( )
