Eve Barber is an average kid, until puberty hits and everything starts to change. Her parents die in a freak accident, a war breaks out between mad scientists and religious zealots, her body transforms in what she feels are hideous ways, and her extraordinary powers manifest.
Eve can create avatars. They are five individuals that can go out and experience the world for her: her parents, her best friend, the boy she loves and the girl she resents. Eve can't control the Avatars-- they have a mind of their own. But they've found a way to work together... to become a family.
Life finds a new normal as Eve moves to the background and her avatars navigate the world. Until one day Eve is caught in a terrorist attack by the Technologists, a rogue faction of mad scientists.
Eve watches as a young girl is abducted and does nothing, knowing with her avatars she could have helped.
Guilt eats away at Eve until she realizes she has to do something. She has to be brave and face the world in order to help the kidnapped girl.

Risks and challenges
The biggest risk of this project is distribution after the product is done. We are confident we can host the book on several digital platforms, but ultimately we would like it to be in comic book stores.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
