Fade by Lisa McMann

March 12th, 2009 by Debbie's World of Books


I give this book a 5 out of 5 stars.

Description: 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 even feared…

I was told this book was even better than Wake.  I had a hard time believing it before I started because Wake was pretty darn good.  Now that I finished I totally have to agree!  I thought Fade was an awesome book.  The central story about trying to track down a teacher who is preying on the students was pretty predictable but it’s what you learn about Janie’s ability and the consequences that come with it that really grabs the reader.

I also enjoy the style of McMann’s writing with the break down of dates and times.  I seriously cannot wait to see what McMann’s next book will bring.  This one was a serious-“I cannot put this down until I finish it” book.

    lol. Yes, I couldn’t resist. I actually was glad to have a nice, quick book that was really good. The last two books I read were like 600 pages long each so it was a relief to go to something shorter.

    I loved Wake so if this is better I can’t wait! I was seriously in a bookstore about to buy this one but my sister reminded me of my huge tbr pile and made me put some books back haha

    I haven’t read either book in the series so I’d better get to it! Glad to hear you liked both of them. I’ve heard all good reviews.

    LOL. My TBR pile is huge but Wake and Fade were both such quick reads I had to squeeze them in. The writing style is kind of different and I know some people didn’t care for that style.

    I liked Wake but thought it could have been a little better. Hopefully I’ll enjoy this one more. Great review.
