About the Book:

Nicolas "Nico" Hall is sixteen when he escapes from Dr. H's religious gay reprogramming institute in California. On his own, he assumes one identity after another to avoid recapture as he flees south to Peru and then to Mexico.

Seven days older than Nico, Samuel "Sam" Jonas Solomon is a privileged Upper West Side only child who idolizes James Bond. When his heart is broken, he vows that, like Bond, he's never going to trust in love again. Then he meets Nico, and his heart won't listen to any logic.

Nico's survived by living only for himself--until his love for Sam has him risking his freedom for others. And as much as Sam wants to be like 007, he discovers that James Bond is a terrible role model.

Together, Nico and Sam set out to free the other teens trapped in Dr. H's Institute, plunging readers into perils, drama, and a long-shot chance at love. To succeed, they'll both have to be A Different Kind of Brave.
