SYNOPSIS

Previously homeschooled Camie Ramsey is being shoved into the shark-infested waters of public high school, where even helium filled, penguin bespeckled arm floaties likely won’t help keep her inexperienced, fifteen-year old head above water in that rip current of hormones and emotions.

Camie’s worldly wisdom might be severely lacking (i.e., the closest she’s come to being kissed was sitting too close to the TV whilst Jake Ryan leaned in to give Samantha that fateful 16th birthday kiss), but she does understand her only hope for survival is if she’s thrown some kind of “social” life preserver before she sinks like a freaking rock. However, what will her fate be when she endeavors to flag down the only lifeguard on duty, the enormously popular and ridiculously beautiful Tristan Daniels? The most sought after and virtually most unattainable guy in school who not only makes Camie’s heart flatline on a recurring basis, he’s also the one guy who seemingly doesn’t know she exists.

Feeling like an inept piece of chum that could ultimately be swallowed by Jaws, can Camie get Tristan to rescue her from floundering in the treacherous deep, or is she destined to be Shark Bait?

Author’s Note: While the tales themselves are fictional, some of the events and characters are very loosely based in reality and on my experiences—but don’t worry, the names of the characters, most of their unfortunate fashion sense and/or questionable taste in music has been changed to protect the not-so innocent. 

Due to language and some adult content, this book may not be suitable for readers under the age of 16.

Review by Gitte

This is Jenn Cooksey’s first published book and I have to say that I thought Shark Bait was very well written and I LOVE J. Cooksey’s style of writing, it’s quick witted, sarky, REAL and bang up to date!! “Tristan’s Wall of Infamy conversations” had me in stitches!!

Camie and her family move back home after her Mum gets diagnosed with breast cancer. After being home-schooled by her Mum she now has to enter and survive the gauntlets of proper high-school.

It took me a good few chapters to warm up to Camie. Yes I liked her quick wit but it wasn’t until she showed the REAL Camie that I got her. I actually think this applies to most of the characters, however, I defy anyone not to swoon over Tristan from the get go though ;0)The second half of the book was great!!

Shark Bait is definitely aimed at the younger YA readers due to the issues and concerns, and for that I think it’s spot on!!

For me I lean more towards the older end of this genre when I read YA, that said, I did think overall it was a FAB first effort by Jenn Cooksey!
