The Goldberg sisters are imperfect. Kylie is a bipolar who just came out as bi. Rosin has been in the hospital 7 times for suicide attempts, and has 6 digits on her hands and feet from her unborn twin. Margaret was born 2 months premature, and somehow survived with no physical deformities. Her brain is a bit underdeveloped and slow, but she still sticks to her age level. She has Borderline Personality Disorder, ADHD, and Panic Disorder. She also has differently colored eyes. Their parents just wish that the girls were normal...maybe even perfect. When a man claiming to be a doctor shows up on their doorstep carrying a serum that will supposedly wipe away the girls’ imperfections, the Goldbergs are shocked and thrilled. Their parents are all for using their girls to test out the serum. The serum works, but the girls eventually discover terrifying side effects - side effects that could kill them. Can they find a way to stop the serum from destroying them completely?


5. An Unannounced Guest(Also Known as Hope, or Maybe Despair)

When I finally get home an hour later, everyone is gathered in the living room, all...five of them?

    An unfamiliar man with shaggy gray-streaked black hair and light blue eyes moves to greet me. “You must be Margaret.”

    I nod, then shoot a questioning look towards Rosin. She just looks away.

    “Margaret, how would you feel about participating in a study of mine?’

    Oh, this should be good. “A study?”

    “Yes. A study that involves...imperfect human traits.”

    “I’m sorry...who are you? I didn’t catch your name.”

    The man blinks, then breaks into a smile that’s probably meant to be welcoming, but to me is just creepy. “Oh, of course, where are my manners? I’m Dr. Kingley. I specialize in studies of personality, and really anything mental. You see, I’ve been working on a serum that is meant to wipe away traits and disorders that are considered unnatural by society, like bipolar disorder or bisexuality, for instance.” He glances at Kylie, who is bright red with fury, then quickly focuses back on me. “It is meant to make one...perfect. Normal, if I may. And I believe I have finally perfected the formula.

    “I would like to try it on you and your sisters.”


    I automatically step back. “What?! Are you nuts? How do you know it won’t just kill us?”

    “I assure you, the formul is safe for human consumption. It’s been analyzed a thousand times, and did not have ny harmful effects when tested on chimpanzees.”

    Kylie isn’t the only one who’s about to shoot steam out of her ears. “You know what, Doc? You’re nuts. We don’t need some kind of ‘perfect’ serum. We’re fine the way we are. You know, believe in yourself and all that sunshine. So why don’t you just scurry on back to your mad lab.” I hear my parents gasp as I turn and run up the stairs, then up the attic stairs, and slam my bedroom door behind me.
