These 20 people recall fondly the books that separated their lives into before and after, and we’re all going to have more reading to do now! I remember reading this and being so angry at the trial part of the story. For whatever reason since I have read this book in Jr high, it’s has totally changed my viewpoint on reading and education. This book is still too this day one of my favorite books to read. The books we love as children…The Giver I remember reading that book in 6th or 7th grade and just being blown away.
