Definition of the "Novella Genre": A novella ebook fits in between a short story and a full-length novel. Unlike a short story, a novella has room for plot development, character growth and change, and more conflicts. However, unlike a novel, the novella typically does not have multiple perspectives, is not split into chapters, and does not have the luxury of in-depth subplots. Novella ebooks are meant to be consumed in one sitting and take a great deal of dexterity and skill in the author drafting them.
Examples of bestselling and famous novellas are John Steinbeck (The Pearl), Stephen King (Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption), Truman Capote (Breakfast at Tiffany's) and Animal Farm (George Orwell).

In the end, he discovers that even when everything goes as planned, there are still things in life that are beyond his control—and that sometimes joy can be found in very unexpected places.
