Quinn and the Quiet, Quiet


Quinn might get used to the food, Work Bots, and creating the Blue Brick™… but why are children all around him turning blue?

Quinn Fleet, 12, Packager, has only been at the Work Centre for three days, but he’s already seen a Digger run away, been questioned, and been made to stand in front of a crowd of children in the Grand Hall to apologize for breaking a Blue Brick™.
That's when he notices how blue everyone looks.

Why are the children turning blue? Why can they make the strange blue spark when they snap their fingers? What’s the blue shimmer? And why do a renegade Work Bot and an Officer want Quinn to lead the oldest children to the sanctuary of the Quiet, Quiet?

But more than all that, what is the Quiet, Quiet, anyway?
