The Boy Who Kissed Lightning--an unusual title for an unusual book!

First off, I loved that it was told from the perspective of Leo, a young man who's unsure of himself, afraid of change, but has a good heart. He was a likable character and easy to

"Absolutely essential reading. This book captures a moment in time where in some regions of the world we should, ostensibly, have equal rights - but the reality falls far short. I could not recommend this book more."

Yes, I'm one of the authors, and yes that probably makes my opinion biased lol but here are my thoughts on Don't Open the Door.

Even though I was a contributor to the collection, we all got complete creative freedom to write the story we wanted, so

John Green
“As he read, I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once.”
John Green, The Fault in Our Stars

Dita Von Teese
“You can be the ripest, juiciest peach in the world, and there's still going to be somebody who hates peaches.”
Dita Von Teese

Sylvia Plath
“There is something demoralizing about watching two people get more and more crazy about each other, especially when you are the only extra person in the room. It's like watching Paris from an express caboose heading in the opposite direction--every second the city gets smaller and smaller, only you feel it's really you getting smaller and smaller and lonelier and lonelier, rushing away from all those lights and excitement at about a million miles an hour.”
Sylvia Plath, The Bell Jar

James Baldwin
“I imagine one of the reasons people cling to their hates so stubbornly is because they sense, once hate is gone, they will be forced to deal with pain.”
James Baldwin, The Fire Next Time

Oscar Wilde
“Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.”
Oscar Wilde
