The first book I remember reading because I chose to was The Giver. I dont remember who it was written by but we had to read it in class and I missed a couple days so I fell behind. I asked to borrow the book over the weekend to catch up and I read the entire book by Monday morning. I had finished the book before the rest of the class. I also remember the teacher telling me I couldnt say anything about it to anyone and got stuck with a bok report on symbolism and such. So far its one of my all time favorites.
