I'm a senior in college doing a research project on The Giver and the way it resonates with adolescent readers, so if any of you teachers out there who have taught this book would be willing to answer a few questions or just make some comments, I'd really appreciate it.
1. What about this book really attracts adolescents? What do they identify with most or least?
2. How do you think this book has managed to remain popular to youth in 25 years on the shelves?
3. What about the representation of adolescence in the book do you find most or least like reality?
