I want to read this but I am a bit confused on what it's about. I want to watch it but only if I read it. Should I read it?

Jennifer I definitely think you should read it. Before you watch it, though. It will make much more sense if you read it first. Basically, when you turn twelve a huge ceremony happens and you get your job that you will have for the rest of your life. Jonas' job is the Giver, but he has no idea what this entitles. That's all I can say without giving away anything.
