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.

Alex Sanchez has created a deep and moving story about growing up and coming to terms with trauma. In Bait Diego Mcmann is a troubled boy who has trouble controlling his fists. He finds it hard to trust people in his life until he meets his probation officer Mr. Vidas. Though the third person narrative we are able to keep a step ahead of Diego and see him come to terms with his abandonment and abuse. This story would be nothing without it's rich characters and well thought out story line. Through this novel Sanchez is able to explore how abuse can take it's toll on individuals and show that a caring and patient adult can make all the difference in the world.
