I'm looking for a book I read in Junior High (probably) about a world where everyone was basically the same race. One genetically pure male and female teenager of each race still exists. They are transporting a genetically pure boy to meet his genetically pure female counterpart and accidentally introduce him to a genetically pure female of a different race. And, of course, chaos ensues. Any thoughts?
Pretty sure that is Piers Anthony's Race against Time (1973).
Some details to help verify:
- He lives in a town which is done to LOOK like Nebraska, but isn't.
- He has a dog that seems to have capabilities beyond what a dog should have.
- Adults are actually a medium color, but spray themselves to appear Caucasian (in his area. Different colors are used in the other areas.)
- The various kids all eventually meet up and flee the planet.
Sound about right?
