Someone Is Watching is the second installment in what has become the 'Gay Youth Chronicles' series. The series has taken on a life of its own in the last several years. As of this writing, there are eight novels in this series and Mr. Roeder shows no sign of ending this experience soon. He writes mainly about and to gay youth, but he has gained an audience of all ages in the process. Each of his novels deals with a different aspect of growing up gay and does so in a very realistic manner. The focus of Someone Is Watching is the problem faced by Ethan, one of the more popular boys at Verona High School, and what happens when someone finds out his secret and threatens to reveal it to the whole school. He is finally forced to deal with the problem and in the process gains a loving relationship with Nathan. Every ongoing series needs a 'pivot' or 'home base' entry that ties the whole story together. For the 'Gay Youth Chronicles', this is it. It is the perfect follow up to the first in the series, 'The Soccer Field Is Empty'. Perhaps, more important than the problem that Ethan faces at school is the foundation that is laid that gives a common base around which the whole series pivots. It introduces the Selby Farm and the people that make it run. It establishes, another story, on how an extended family is formed and about the love and respect that makes it function and grow. Almost every main character in Mr. Roeder's series comes in contact with Ethan, Nathan and the other residents of the Selby Farm. It is essential reading in character development for the series. Ethan was there at the beginning as a friend of Mark Bailey in 'Soccer Field' and continues to be the solid force that ties the series together by his presence, even if it sometimes is minor and takes a background position. All fans of Mr. Roeder's work should not skip this one.

I could really relate to this book. I know what it's like trying to come to grips with who you are sexually, and have some cruel person knowing and holding your fate in their hands. This book was fabulous

this book was outstanding. Finally an author who can captivate what it is like livining in a rural area and being the outcast. This book relates to the young gay youth in a way that no one else has been able to. I laughed and I cried. Reading this book lets a a weight off your heart that can't be done by any psycologist or religious expert. Buy this book!

I found the book so juvenile as to be unreadable. If I were 14 years old and I found this book I would be thrilled. As it was I was just bored.

This book is great. It shows a boy struggling with his true identity but some how manages to stay true to himself. He battles what he thinks he should be and loses to find out excepting who he is, is better than being who he isn't.

This a another gay love story that touched me deeply. I think the material presented allowed the reader to differentiate between physical attraction and emotional longing. So many people, gay and straight, never understand the difference. The story is sweet, entertaining and educational. No one could help but like Ethan, Nathan, Dave, Uncle Jack and Jon, as well. I know what farm life is about and Roeder brought the memories back to me. The book is well-paced and tender. I know how difficult it is for some guys to come out and find acceptance, and we all do it in different ways. It took me forever. This book will help any young person cope with his homosexuality. Fine, well-written text here! Great job.

Just finished reading Someone Is Watching and it is even better than Ancient Prejudice! Once again Mark tells the story of the challanges of growing up in America. He does it in a way that makes you laugh, cry and say that was me too.

Unconvincing. Contrived. Don't waste your money.
