    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 know this is wrong....

    Tiny Lambert is excited! It is 1956, and today is her first day at Black Gap High School in Virginia. Maybe she will finally make some friends. And a high school with band practice and football games may be just the thing she needs to keep her away from her house—and her stepfather Vern. Tiny feels uncomfortable whenever Vern drinks. He looks at her in a strange, new way. No one else seems to understand why she complains or tries to avoid him—not even Mom.
