Summary
Part social satire, part romance, part revolutionary thriller, Shades of Grey tells of a battle against overwhelming odds. In a society where the ability to see the higher end of the color spectrum denotes a better social standing, Eddie Russet belongs to the low-level House of Red and can see his own color but no other. Eddie might have lived out his rose-tinted life without a hitch. But he met Jane a Grey Nightseer from the unlit side of the village. (Bestseller)
