A Child Like No Other...


Like the child he was built to look like and behave like, David wanted only to love and to be loved, unconditionally, the way he loved. The first of a new kind of Mecha, he was built to be the perfect child, never sick, never to grow up and leave his family, caught in a freeze-frame of time. Adopted by the Swintons, imprinted by Monica Swinton, he finds the world a bright and wondrous place at first. But when he discovered he was not like other boys, that Orga love is not like his, not so pure and single-minded, and fearing this made him less lovable, he set out to become real so that he might be loved. And the journey he takes to discover his true nature changes everyone around him, Orga and Mecha, including himself...
