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....

Wowza, this book did not disappoint. I loved Wake and I think this one is even better. It's a quick read that grabs you from the first page and never lets go until the ride is over. Janie and Cabel are such interesting and sympathetic characters and you can't help but root for them in whatever situation they find themselves in.

This was just such a great continuation of their story. It offered a whole new mystery with an ending that honestly surprised me. I hope that McMann plans to write more in this series, because I can't wait to see what happens to these two characters in college.

If you haven't read these books yet, you should head to your favorite book haunt and pick them up. You won't regret it!
