Art is a spineless Christian who's been bullied at school for being a dork and treated poorly by his devout parents for being gay. He can't seem to defend himself no matter how hard he tries, especially because he believes God wouldn't like it. He's relieved to graduate high school, and he plans to move out of his parents' house to a toxic-free environment. It's the one escape route he clings to.

In what first seems like a stroke of good luck for once, Art meets Cole at a restaurant while Cole waits his table, and they hit it off rather quickly. They swap numbers and plan to meet up later on, only for it to be the last that they see each other.

Soon after, Art encounters someone he knows very well who changes his life for the worst, and Art tries to end his life after the incident. His parents don't believe him when he tells them what happened, nor do they support his mental health. Therefore, he feels he has no choice but to leave as soon as possible. Little does he know, Cole—the one guy he thought he'd never see again—could end up becoming more important than he ever imagined.

But will Art open up and give Cole a chance?

Publisher's note: This novel contains "off-page" sexual assault, suicidal ideation, and a suicide attempt.

Struck: The Lightning Project

The Lightning Project #1

Victoria Kinnaird

Ethan Thorn is a lot of things. The heroic type isn’t one of them.

A hacker with a tendency to self-isolate too much, Ethan is desperate for something different in life, something more exciting than the sleepy town of Orchard Side. Being “Struck” and waking up in a secret government facility in a New York skyscraper certainly wasn’t what he had in mind.

Against his will, he’s now part of The Lightning Project, a government program to turn average teens into crime-fighting superheroes. As much as Ethan hates it, there’s one thing he secretly loves about it: Adam, the project leader. He’s a sweet, shy, boy-next-door type, certainly not someone Ethan should be interested in. Nonetheless, Ethan finds himself drawn to Adam.

Faced with a devastating secret from The Lightning Project’s past, Ethan comes up against the most difficult choice of his entire life. Does he take his place as a member of the team, accept his destiny as a superhero, and bury the part of him that questions authority at every turn? Or does he go back to the life he hated in Orchard Side?

But tragedy strikes and Shawn and Will go in search of a long-buried family secret that will forever change both their lives. As they get closer to the truth, they start to realize that seeking that answer will only raise new questions, questions that no one wants to answer.

As the secret unravel, Shawn’s love for his boyfriend is strengthened, but Will’s faith in love is questioned. For Will, his solace may be found in Weston, a mysterious boy who’s suffered his own tragedy.

This is a journey of love, friendship, and discovering that even in tragedy, there is hope.
