-Kyle and Alex are at each others throats again, but being apart from each other is proving to be a much worse fate.
-When Mason's family doesn't show up for group therapy, he is faced with choosing to stay true to his faith, or giving in to the unescapable temptations at the Academy.
All they knew was that college life is their time for fun but now they are being forced to convert from their homosexuality. Jimmy's secret is still hidden far from everyone and that's exactly how he wants to keep it. Jake is possibly threatening his time at the Academy. Kyle and Alex are fighting with each other as usual but they are learning that being apart is not a better choice. Mason's family is not being very supportive so now he has to make serious decision.
This is the second installment in the Lost Boys Academy series. I found the second book more involved as the first installment set up the characters but in this one we learn more about their stories and their backgrounds. Aaron really makes you think as the topic of guys in college being forced to rehabilitate from their sexuality. We know these establishments exist but now to read a story with characters facing these issues was an eye-opener to this entire conversion therapy. I give so much credit to the author for taking a chance on a very hot topic in this series and he's done it so brilliantly.
I just loved how completely different these boys are but at the same time their at the college for the exact same outcome. I like how they are at the school for completely different reasons and how widespread the issues are. The author takes you on an intense ride of self discovery, awareness and living one's own truth. I love these boys and felt their pain and they stayed with me long after I finished this novel and that speaks volumes of the great writing of this author. I highly recommend this novel so much as it will make you think while giving you a brilliant and beautifully written story.....Lost Boys Academy 2!!!!
