When first contact is made with the alien race Khondra, Flynn is excited and interested in the newcomers. So when a group of Khondra youngsters enroll in his high school, he'll do anything to be considered part of their clique.

But the most ordinary thngs are considered contraband for the Khondra. Flynn's longing to be just like his new friends leads him down a dangerous path. Will he really ever belong to the Khondra clique? Or, will he just learn to despise his humanity in the end?
While short the message in this story was still quite clear. Flynn has tried for so long to find a place in his own society and failed that when a new race makes contact he feels he has another chance to fit in someplace to the point of going out of his way to dress and change his skin color. Sadly Flynn has another lesson to learn which is you need to be yourself and no matter how much you change on the outside you still are who you are!

I liked the message of the story but still had some unanswered questions like what exactly did brazzhaf mean and why Flynn was such a social outcast to begin with?
