"Equivalant to reading 25 books"

Dennett. Drawing from the horizons of science, today's leading thinkers reveal the hidden threats nobody is talking about - and expose the false fears everyone else is distracted by. Encompassing neuroscience, economics, philosophy, physics, psychology, biology, and more - here are 150 ideas that will revolutionize your understanding of the world.
My name is Hope and I'd like to introduce you to our world. Earth is full of two races, the Avoidables and the 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.
"Interesting new series!"
Gina is stuck in the jungle with the cat rebels. Her kidnapping shocks the Perfect into actually having to fend for herself in the real world. Noland is sent to rescue her, but he's caught too. The Perfect and Avoidable manage to escape the cat rebels, but how long will they last in the jungle?
Layla has never been out of the rebel camp before, so when she's asked to help the Perfects with Amya, the leader of the cat rebels, she jumps at the chance. She meets Henry, the scientist in charge of Amya's care, and instantly falls into a love/hate relationship with him.
