Thinking more ... does Tom's Midnight Garden count because of TIme
There was another book I remember reading about a futuristic world
where all these students get "assigned jobs" depending on their
skills. And there's this weird game that they find out about
playing. I forget who wrote the book, but it might be called
"The Game". I remember more, but I don't want to give away
any surprises since I totally recommend it. Does this sound
familiar to anyone ? I can't find it by googling.
Phillip Pullman's The Golden Compass might count, although again
it seems like sci-fi crossed with fantasy.
