“Set in a future world in which a caste system of color rigidly defines each individual, our naive young hero -- who wants nothing more than to marry up-color -- is sent to the outskirts of the civilized world as punishment for prideful behavior. Here, he falls in love -- and must answer some uncomfortable questions and face dangerous truths. Fforde's characters are quirky, fresh, and engaging, and he draws from a seemingly bottomless well of hilarity. Funny, fast-paced, and fabulous!”
