While Meggie and David Blue are from another planet, they''re a lot like Earth kids, with similar hopes and dreams, and can''t wait to grow up. But they also have "grossly unique" qualities, such as blue streaks in their hair that pop up randomly and language skills that sound like nothing on this planet.
From the Publisher:
While Meggie and David Blue are from another planet, they're a lot like Earth kids, with similar hopes and dreams, and can't wait to grow up. BUT they also have GROSSLY UNIQUE qualities, such as blue streaks in their hair that pop up randomly and language skills that sound like nothing on this planet. The story takes these alien kids, along with their mother and grandfather, by accident, to a far planet in which the society is not only oppressive but hostile to individual freedom. People are kept submissive through drugs and brainwashing. The Blues, who have spent time in free societies recognize the upside-down-ness of this world. They're almost helpless to do anything, but do what they can, plan their escape, and vow to help others.


From the Hardcover edition.
Annotation:
In this dystopian middle grade novel, the notion of what personal freedom means is explored in detail. After aliens Meggie Blue and her family are driven from their comfortable North Carolina home by community fear, the Blues flee to a planet where conformity and group think rules. Despite being told that everybody likes life in Fashion City, Meggie and her older brother, David, find their new home intensely restrictive and hostile. Mom and Gramps are struggling, too, and despite the ever-present danger of exposure and imprisonment, the Blues decide to fight back. Author Ruth White won a Newbery Honor for BELLE PRATER'S BOY.
