Finding himself alone in a posh New York City hotel room for the night, Aidan does what any red-blooded seventeen-year-old would do-- he tries to hook up with someone new. But that lapse in judgment leads to him waking up next to a dead guy, which sparks an epic case of mistaken identity. Now he's on the run from federal agents-- and a cyber-terrorist group who will stop at nothing to find him.

*Starred Review* The thing is, Aidan was just in the wrong place at the wrong time. When he trolled the DirtyPaws app, he was just looking for a hookup. Sure, the guy he ended up with (BenoÃ®t, a Silver-Foxy-Anderson-Coopery-Roger-Sterling-y dude) is being a little weird, but this is a sex-on-demand app. But then Aidan wakes up to find BenoÃ®t dead next to him and a threatening voice on the other end of his phone: if he doesn't hand over the item, the mysterious caller will come after him. The only problem is that Aidan, who has a past he doesn't want anyone digging into, has no idea what the item in question is. Then the pieces start to fall into place: he's entangled with a terrorist organization called the Swans, an extremist group targeting those who threaten gay rights. Aidan's conflictedâsure, the Swans are terrorists, but he understands their motivesâand by the time he meets Shiloh, a guy who shows up on a train right when Aidan needs him, he's completely turned around. Hitchcock gets a jolt of social justice in Milman's (Scream All Night, 2018) sophomore novel. What could have been just a clever reconstruction of classic mystery conventions is elevated by wry humor and genuine emotional intensity. As a thriller, it's twisted and engaging; as a character study, it has lingering, affecting aftershocks. Grades 10-12. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
