Ahmed, a young gay man, escapes from his family after a stint in a gay-to-straight treatment facility. Picked up by a couple of lesberados, he enters the underground of youth hiding from the world, and further boot-camp hell, until he becomes 18. Here he learns about rules, bounty hunters, and predators. He also learns that rules are made to be broken, sex is not love, and life is truly scary and dangerous. This debut novel by Tomas Mournian is based on fact. And that alone should disturb any reader of this carefully crafted and disturbing tale of what teens will do to survive. • Kensington Publishing (kensingtonbooks.com). —Review: Angel Curtis
