“This book is amazing! I enjoyed reading it because it was hard to put down. This book is about a kid who lives in a gray world ruled by Loving Leader, who makes everybody be the same. This kid does something different and, as a punishment, is sent to another planet. He keeps trying to get home to his aunt and uncle, and also keeps trying to find his parents so he can return home. ”
