Something horrible has been happening at Fieldridge High
but nobody is talking about it. Then Janie ends up in a
classmate's violent and shocking nightmare and things start
to make more sense. A teacher in her school is taking
advantage of girls and Janie is in a position to put an end
However Janie ends up in way over her head and her
boyfriend Cabel is having problems dealing with the
situation they have found themselves in. Meanwhile Janie
learns more about her dream catching ability and it doesn't
look good. No cure and no escape. Janie is going to be
pulled into peoples dreams for the rest of her life with
some dire consequences.
Fade is the second book in the series about Janie
and her dream catching abilities. The first book Wake
really took me by surprise and I couldn't wait to get hold
of this sequel. I was not disappointed and thoroughly
enjoyed reading more about Janie's ability and also
following her relationship with Cabel and her secret job.
The whole concept of having the ability to see into
someone's dreams is absolutely ingenious. The way the story
is written really makes this series even more special and I
am certainly going to be pre-ordering book three, Gone, as
soon as I can.
Young adult or not, this is an amazingly original but
spooky series that is extremely enjoyable. I highly
recommend this to everyone of any age and anyone who loves
reading a good book.
