The book The Giver is a very good example of a child being forced to grow up and mature very quickly. Many of the freedoms that my friends and I have are taken away from him. Before he is given the job he can hag out with his friends and has many more freedoms but he's very restricted already. But after the job is given to him he has to go start to it and then straight home. This book is probably one of the best books I have every read but it is also a very good example of how your surroundings can effect the way you grow up.
