Probably the most intense and realest of Alex Sanchez's books I've read so far — definitely the most serious.

EVEN THOUGH THE MAIN CHARACTER IDS MALE IT CAN HAVE AN EFFECT ON BOTH MALE AND FEMALES. IT IS A STORY OF SECRETS, ANGE, AND REDEMPTION. IT DID NOT HAVE A TOO FAST OR TOO SLOW OF A PACE. The PACE WAS JUST RIGHT. The BOMBS THAT GO OFF DURING THE BOOK GO OFF JUST RIGHT. AFTER YOU READ THIS BOOK YOU WILL LOOK AT CERTAIN PEOPLE DIFFERENTLY

Told from the third person point of view readers will rally to Diego’s side waiting for him to open up to his probation officer, Mr. Vidas. This is a rich story that tells the story of a boy coming of age as he deals with his past. Although the story deals with some mature matter the details are clear but not graphic. Teens will identify with this high interest coming of age story. A must have novel for both junior and senior high school libraries. ( )

Personal Response: This book was interesting because the author, who is a probation officer, brought in his experience to tell us the story of a boy trying to grow beyond a painful past. This could be a good book for a young adult dealing with sexual abuse issues.

Curricular or Programming Connections: Sexual Abuse, Emotional problems and growing and making sense of the experience and building a healthy foundation for moving forward in their life. ( )

Though Diego is plagued by his demons, he desperately wants to find relief from it all so he can move on with his life.

It's a dream that you root for him to achieve and he's honestly a likeable character. He says and does the wrong things sometimes (though we all do) and that leads him into trouble, but he wants to be a better guy. He really is a good person. His anger just gets the best of him and he can't properly control it. Through all of that, though, you want him to be the man you know that he is and to get past the life he's been dealt.

The summary of BAIT doesn't give things away, so I don't want to, either, but this is an intense book that deals with big issues. It was definitely interesting and I'm very glad I was given the chance to read it.

Diego hates the idea of being called gay, but why? Is it a mere prejudice or something more? The story delves into the "something more" side that leaves you horrified. It's a realistic novel that will hopefully help some and inform others.

More than anything, I think this book brings up the topic of being honest with those you love. You have to trust them and hope they will be there for you when you need them to be. If they aren't, that's not your problem. It's just good to know you tried and that you can find help if you need it. It might be from unsuspecting people, but it might be from someone in your own house. You just don't know.

BAIT is the fourth novel I've read by Alex Sanchez, and it was very different from the others - but not in a bad way. It digs deeper into the psyche of human emotion and experiences, and I found that highly interesting, if not always enjoyable, to read. ( )
