Lee can't believe what he's hearing.  It's been hard enough to have his brother come to boarding school with him.  And now his parents want Lee and Smits to move back home.  This must be just a bad dream.  You see, Lee isn't really who he says he is.  Lee is the identity taken on by Luke -- an illegal third child.  His only choice had been to become someone else or to be killed by the Population Police.  Life at school was just starting to be fun.  Most of the boys were also illegals so they had much in common.  And now Luke faces becoming Lee to the outside.  It makes no sense though.  Surely the Grants know that Luke is an imposter.  Smits does too.  Why is everyone acting as if he really is Lee?  And what will it be like to live Among the Barons?
