"Portrait of a Starter" is a nice introduction to the world Lissa Price has created, and it made me even more excited to read "Starters".
In this short story, we get to meet Michael who happens to be a Starter. He spends his time drawing others, his nose deep in his sketchpad. The story starts off with him drawing Callie, a fellow Starter, while she sleeps.
The next morning, Callie takes off, after asking Michael to watch over her brother, Tyler. Michael assures her that he will, but curious as to where she's headed, he asks a Friendlie to watch Tyler so that he can follow her. But what Michael finds when he follows Callie will only bring questions: Who is the boy she's with? Why did they go inside of Prime Destinations? And will he ever see her again?
