Mara Cenva is a girl growing up in the mountain town of Jabal Maraj. She is kept in isolation by her family because they fear she will be persecuted for her blue skin (a rare genetic condition). I am having trouble with this story as it was mostly written in fragments, but eventually this will be Mara's life:
She begins to lead a life outside the house with the other children of the village. After a rough start she lives in peace for a few years. Unfortunately, she looks like Goddess Sia (Goddess of prosperity), and there is someone who would gain from having visits from a "goddess". Mara's struggle is to live on her own terms as herself again. Feedback please! This has been floating around in my notebooks and computer drive unfinished for about a year.
