In everybody's life, there are doors to open. They never lead to the same goal, but all look the same. Most people will open the first door. The first door is the easy way out, it comes with no catches, or extra things that may prove to be useful or not. But, the first door doesn't always lead you to your goal. There is always a second door, or a third door, etcetera, etcetera. I, myself, want to open that second door.
My name is Lispen Madderfeld, I'm 14, and I'm an orphan. My only family is my brother, Sam, and my black cat, Esmé. Most people like me open the first door. I want to open the second door and find a better way out.
But, I never said that opening that second door was going to be easy. And, this is my story.
