It's a middle school book about a Utopian/dystopian society which converted to "Sameness" because they decided the highs and lows of emotion, suffering, and pleasure weren't worth it.

One designated "Giver" was chosen to have knowledge and feeling of all pleasures and pains so the masses wouldn't have to. The story is from the POV of the newest "Giver"

A side-effect of this was that the society would do stuff like kill "extra" babies and give everyone libido-destroying pills.
