Fade by Lisa McMann

Title: Fade
Author: Lisa McMann
Published: February 2009
Series #: 2 in Dream Catcher
Synopsis from Goodreads:

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.... 

Fade was just as enjoyable as Wake, if not more so. It was really easy to get back into Janie's world. I really like the relationship between Cabel and Janie, it's what made the book even better than the first one. I'm a sucker for romance.

I liked the plot of this one better too. The crime that they're trying to bust is more dangerous, and a heck of a lot more interesting than in Wake. The stakes are higher, which made it really hard to put down. I felt like I knew Janie better than in Wake, I got more insight into her thoughts and feelings. It still felt like I was on the outside looking in, but in a good way.

As far as sequels go, this is one of the better ones that I've seen, and I really can't wait to read Gone!

Cover Comments: I like this cover more than the first one. The glass of liquid actually has something to do with the book also, which I didn't realize until I was done and looked at it again.
