{Synopsis} – Hi, my name is Hope and I'd like to introduce you to our world. Earth is full of two races, the Avoidables and Perfects. I'm an Avoidable because I only have one arm. I was born that way apparently. Because of my defect, my mother had to move to the Lower Side. The Perfects are humans that have no physical flaws. They live in luxury, while we live in filth.

Avoidables have defects ranging from looks to unexplained gifts. Some of us are half breeds. Dragons and angels were known to have bred with the human race thousands of years ago. We all live in cities, usually divided in two. The Perfects live on the Upper Side, while the Avoidables inhabit the Lower Side. We've been consumed by hate for a race that rejects us so heartlessly. We've become dangerous.

I like to sneak over to their side sometimes. It's fun to watch how they live. To watch their perfect gorgeous faces react to the one armed freak. Until I met Jason anyway. He ignored the fact that I had one arm, even daring to touch my shoulder stub. What happened when he did, blew my mind. I was no longer an ugly Avoidable. I was much, much better than any Perfect.

{My Thoughts} – I always enjoy finding little nuggets for free on amazon. This is one of those nuggets.

“Earth is full of two races, the Avoidables and Perfects.” An avoidable is someone that is flawed in some way or form and a Perfect is someone that is not flawed at all. In this story you learn about the two races and how they became separated. You learn that there is a plan that has been in the works to try and unite the two races and help them to co-exist with one another without all the discrimination.

Hope is an Avoidable that has one arm and she likes to sneak onto the Perfects territory and enjoy the luxuries that they have and she don’t. When the book begins that’s what she was doing. She was dancing at the Perfects dance club of some sort having a great time and then a Perfect saw her and they called security. Before she could be arrested her friend Purple another Avoidable had rescued her. Hope however just had to go back and talk to the guy that called security and soon learned she was instantly drawn to his soul.

She learned that the guys name was Jason and he became a constant in her life after that encounter. He helped her to unlock things within herself that she hadn’t been aware she was capable of and she fell in love with him.

Most of this story is about them avoiding capture after their flat mate bombs one of the building on Perfect territory. Because they lived together they are labeled guilty through association. They have a pal named Artie that helps them stay safe and of course Jason sneaks over from time to time to spend time with her. Eventually they go about catching their flat mates partner and they hold him captive for the Perfects to get him.

Why are they trying to catch the flat mates partner? What did Jason unlock in Hope? Why is she instantly drawn to him? What happened to their flat mate? Did they ever get arrested for being guilty by association? If so what happened? So many questions. It’s a short story and well worth the read.

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
