I'll never look at a can of pea soup the same ever again. Those of you that have read this book will get that comment.
You are what the bar code on your forehead says. Fates are randomly assigned at birth and all live relatively peaceably in this caste system until an unfortunate accident causes one of the "haves" to question everything. I really enjoyed it and have reread it several times.
