Everyone knows there are rules on Capelo Island:
Obey the will of the Giver.
Never leave the island.
Don’t ask questions.
Since the death of her Father, Lera hasn’t obeyed a single one, and nothing bad has happened…so far. Lera tries to convince her sister, Niena, it will be fine. After all, the Giver isn’t real, right?
Then Niena disappears.
Lera will do anything to find her sister, even playing a role in the culture she despises. But, under all the layers of deception, the truth might be darker than even she bargained for.
As they say, nobody survives outside the protection of the Giver.
