ok, since there’s my dash on fire on several sides about the 50 shades of gray trailer let me rec this great book that came out a few years ago and have the misfortune of having a title that’s so much like that …thing… but have absolutely nothing in common with it.
Jasper Fforde - Shades of Grey
Ironic and in the best tradition of british humor science fiction “Shades of Grey” is a hilarious dystopia about a rigid society that have been following nonsensical written rules full of typos and misprints, to a point where it’s a capital crime to fabricate spoons. The people inhabiting this dystopia have lost the ability to see most of the colors in the world, those that manage to perceive a small part of the color spectrum are at the top of society, divided in classes depending on which color you can see. 
Quotes

“Okay, this is the wisdom. First, time spent on reconnaissanse is never wasted. Second, almost anything can be improved with the addition of bacon. And finally, there is no problem on Earth that can’t be ameliorated by a hot bath and a cup of tea.” ― Jasper Fforde, Shades of Grey
“The cucumber and the tomato are both fruit; the avocado is a nut. To assist with the dietary requirements of vegetarians, on the first Tuesday of the month a chicken is officially a vegetable.” ― Jasper Fforde, Shades of Grey
“If you enjoyed laughing in the face of death, you might like to have a crack at High Saffron. One hundred merits, and all you have to do is take a look.’'I understand there's a one hundred percent fatality rate?''True. But up until the moment of death there was a one hundred percent survival rate. Really, I shouldn't let anything as meaningless as statistics put you off.” ― Jasper Fforde, Shades of Grey

some muggleborn like “i want to be an astronaut when i grow up!”

wizard kids like “wtf is an astronaut”

"oh you know…the people who go to the moon"
