Prologue: The main character, a 10-year-old albino girl (Sierra), is chased through a forest in southeast Africa by albino hunters. Among them is her aunt, who eventually catches her and cuts off her right hand. Shortly afterward, a fight breaks out via a betrayal among the hunters and Sierra manages to find a pistol and shoot her aunt. Flash forward four years and . . . Sierra is living with her cousins (now her adoptive family) in America. This being VERY slightly futuristic, she has a fully-functional prosthetic hand. Everything is just golden until Sierra's first day of high school, when she walks into her homeroom and finds her aunt sitting at the teacher's desk. The rest of the story is basically a drama/tension as Sierra's aunt tries to explain that she's turned a new leaf, so to speak. Originally, I wanted the ending to be along the lines of the aunt trying to kill Sierra again, but being stopped by another lead character, Sierra's cousin/sister. Originally, that was extremely predictable and I want a new one. The prologue establishes the overarching conflict, and I don't have a ton of leeway to change up the ending. I understand that I need to think outside the box, but it seems like the box has been bolted to the ground and is made of metal with a fire truck sitting on top. In short, tunnel vision. I need a new ending and possibly a new direction for the conflict. Some little tidbits that may or may not be helpful: -Sierra is designed based on an anime-ish appearance, so even though she's albino and allegedly unhealthy, she's all cute and stuff. -Sierra loves to draw, listen to music, and eat ice cream. -Sierra remains thin from enthusiastic participation in gym class and a fast metabolism. -Sierra's older sister, works at an ice cream shop on the beach. -Sierra's dad is a cop. -Sierra's mom is a nurse. -In the prologue, the man who saves Sierra is a frequent churchgoer who she prematurely assumes has left God for money. -Sierra does contact her biological parents on occasion via e-mail and letters. I usually wouldn't come and ask for help like this, as it seems like cheating to me, but I've been to this point before: the point where I start questioning the driving points of my plot. After such situations, I'm usually left with no plot and some characters who no longer fit any plot I can come up with to replace it. I don't want that to keep happening, and this is my first course of action to prevent it.
