Fade by Lisa McMann

For Janie and Cabel, real life is getting tougher than the dreams. They're just trying to carve out a little (secret) time together, but no such luck.
Disturbing things are happening at Fieldridge High, yet nobody's talking. When Janie taps into a classmate's violent nightmares, the case finally breaks open -- but nothing goes as planned. Not even close. Janie's in way over her head, and Cabe's shocking behavior has grave consequences for them both.
Worse yet, Janie learns the truth about herself and her ability -- and it's bleak. Seriously, brutally bleak. Not only is her fate as a dream catcher sealed, but what's to come is way darker than she'd feared....

Ok first of I really enjoy this series. It is different and the characters are well written and seem so real. 
This book was more disturbing than the other book because it dealt with things more prevalent in society. 

One of the good things about this series is the fact that Janie's "talent"  is not easy on her, a fact that is really prevalent in this book. This book is so complex and thrilling it is written in a way that makes you feel for Janie and love Cabel. Another good thing the fact that it dealt with something that is a huge deal in the world and for me at least it was nice to see that illustrated in Young Adult literature because that is who it mostly affects.

Again this book was short but I don't see how it could have been any longer.



  1. I want to read this series, although I need to go back and check the other title names. Great review. Sometimes short is just what I need!

  2. Thanks for the review. I've read the first book. I'm just waiting for this one to come out in paperback. I found the first one to be a quick but good read.

  3. What an interesting premise for a book! I'll keep an eye out for this one. Thank you for the intriguing review.
