He turned the car off, drew a key from his pocket and unlocked the black iron gate that always seemed unnecessary. A...

I once read this one novel, my junior year of high school, and I wanted to use my special bubblegum pink highlighter on every page. It was one of those books you wish you could hand to people and say “read this and you’ll unde...
