Bruno lives in a world where the quality of your life depends upon the color of you fire. He is a blue, as such he can live in the best neighborhood, become a surgeon, and be considered as a first class citizen.

On the day of a big rugby game and testing in school, Bruno meets a young boy who changes the color of his fire. He has been painted and through unfortunate events, becomes a fugitive.

I always enjoy a book where society has gone terribly wrong and someone realizes it and takes initiative to change things. Bruno becomes a reluctant hero. He didn't set out to be a catalyst for change, but finds himself in the position.

While the premise of the plot may sound confusing in the description, it makes sense the way that R.C. Hancock presents it. I found myself captivated in the story from the very beginning.

This is a great book for anyone who loves a dystopian story. There is action and a little bit of romance.
