Hayley Jones asked Lois Lowry:

Number the Stars and The Giver and both incredible stories of young people growing up in unjust circumstances: are there any traits of Annemarie which you decided to infuse into Jonas as well (as they are both determined protagonists with the odds stacked against them, one might find them similar in nature)?

Lois Lowry There are many things Annemarie and Jonas have in common...primarily the wish to do good in the world
