perhaps great minds do not think alike.
it's been 20 years since the war and absolution has taken hold of evie's community, successfully stripping colour from her world and along with it, all forms of alternative thinking. Youths, otherwise known as shades are administered injections annually which slowly seep individuality from their minds, visible in the fading of their eye colours. on a shades18th birthday the transition from shade to adulthood or absolution is complete, distinguishable by entirely white eyes centered by a single black dot. evie is trapped within her community, fighting the impossible battle between holding onto herself or fitting into society. evie is young and she is reckless and as she grows she realises that she has no intention of becoming an absolute drone so as she ponders her dangerous escape from the sameness around her she wonders, will the colour burning within her eyes be enough to save her from an otherwise dull fate?
