Jane Hughes lives in a future world where all is bland and colorless, and every act and emotion is controlled by the state. It's only when she puts on her secret "Red Dress" that she is lifted out of her grim ordinary life and her world explodes with color and beauty. Is it the Red Dress that holds this magic, or is it something deep inside her? Jane's new-found power gives her strength and confidence, but also brings danger for her and the important people in her life, as she's caught in the middle of a rebellion against the Leader, and must make a choice between security and liberty, between society and conscience, between duty and love. How much will you sacrifice to be free?
