Okay this is a hard one because I don't have many facts about the book.

Here is what I know

It is set in the future where people take memory supressing pills, but there is one person who lives in the community who is responsible for absorbing the memories. The people in this world have no birthdays, but the younger people are put into catagories by the year they were born, The 1's the 2's etc. That is all I have, can the hive mind of Arfcom help?

Sounds a lot like Anthem by Ayn Rand.

Editorial Reviews

In a world with no poverty, no crime, no sickness and no unemployment, and where every family is happy, 12-year-old Jonas is chosen to be the community's Receiver of Memories. Under the tutelage of the Elders and an old man known as the Giver, he discovers the disturbing truth about his utopian world and struggles against the weight of its hypocrisy. With echoes of Brave New World, in this 1994 Newbery Medal winner, Lowry examines the idea that people might freely choose to give up their humanity in order to create a more stable society. Gradually Jonas learns just how costly this ordered and pain-free society can be, and boldly decides he cannot pay the price. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
