They say what doesn't kill you makes you stronger I don't know about that You left me in a bad state Now I feel everything but strong, yeah And there's no way back There's no way back What doesn't kill you makes you smaller What doesn't kill you makes you cold What doesn't kill you makes you wonder If all there is is nothing at all
_________I bet you a hundred books that it begins in what your English professor__________________would call The Ordinary World. Basically, that's the hero's hometown,__________________a place so normative and repressing that high-voltage fun is down__________________right unheard of.
_________Harry Potter? Privet Drive. The Hunger Games? District Twelve. The__________________Chronicles of Narnia? STARTS IN FURNITURE. And OUR story?__________________Oh boy. OUR Ordinary World is Cambridge. The place where Newton__________________discovered gravity, parts of the Harry Potter movies were filmed,__________________and a certain American blogger struggles daily to balance writing a__________________book, living in wonder, and failing out of school all at the same time!__________________Cambridge! Cambridge, I say!
_________Our story begins in an Ordinary World that is anything but. Meaning__________________that from this point forward things will only get *even more* magical.__________________That is, of course, until the meetings and the drugs and The Innermost__________________Cave, and then things get abruptly worse.
_________But I won't spoil the specifics. Let's start with a certain Thursday. In__________________October. In extraordinary Cambridge.
