What I Town is about


In I Town, social status and success are directly proportional to body weight because Induction Town produces electricity, not with steam or water or wind but with the most reliable renewable resource available—human effort, people walking on treadwheels. Shevi and Jackson are sixteen and live at opposite ends of the social spectrum. She’s a big girl betrothed into one of the largest Ironclad families in I Town. He’s a skinny kid, a diminutive or Dim, whose only hope other than scavenging a living from crime is peddling heavy old novels to the wheel walkers. Both Shevi and Jackson have good reason to ignore the attraction they feel for one another. But the attraction is there and it grows stronger each time they meet, threatening everyone from Shevi’s future in–laws to Mr. Myrtle, a little man determined to uphold the status quo by keeping Dims in their place.
