FADE by Lisa McMann
About FADE (taken from goodreads.com)
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.
Review of FADE
I liked this book better than the first one but not enough. The writing was a bit better and there was actually a plot but I found it didn’t really go with the first one. The plot is completely ridiculous. Two teenagers are undercover for the police? I don’t think that’s how it works. There isn’t as much focus on the dreams anymore in this one. It’s all about finding out which teacher is the rapist. This might ruin the book for you but it’s basically all of them. It’s so stupid. Not only is there one rapist but three. Like that actually happens. Plus you suspect every single one of them from the start so it’s not even a surprise.
Then there’s the characters. Oh dear. They need to seriously chill. They whine too much about putting each other in danger it’s ridiculous. They even break up because of it. Relationships do not work like that. I love you but you trouble seems to always find you so I’m breaking up with you but wait! Just kidding! I love you too much so let’s get together again. Yea. Right. Good try.
