Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 8 Up—A fast-paced and engaging story of family drama and first love. Brooke Byers, 17, has her summer all planned out—she will earn enough money to buy a car. However, her plans change when her stepsister Natalie moves in. Natalie has Asperger's Syndrome and everyone in the family must adapt to her needs. When Natalie joins a summer theater program, Brooke quits her job to volunteer at the camp and support Natalie. Brooke enjoys her work and the company of the stage manager, Micah. Natalie has a strong friendship with Micah, but Brooke and Micah are clearly attracted to each other. Their relationship could create too much stress for the family, but Micah is worth it. Fade to Us is Day's second book featuring a character on the autism spectrum and Day succeeds in developing Natalie beyond a stereotype. Likewise, by telling the story from Brooke's perspective, readers experience how family members deal with the symptoms of Asperger's. The romance between Brooke and Micah is engaging and believable, but at times overly dramatic. However, more mature readers will be engaged by Brooke's and Natalie's growing friendship and sisterly bond. VERDICT Fans of Day's The Possibility of Somewhere or works by Laura Creedle and Tara Kelly will enjoy this engaging, lighthearted story.—Kaetlyn Phillips, Yorkton, Sask.

Review

“Warm and sensitive, Day’s deft depiction of difficult sibling and blended family relationships will make you laugh, cry, and sigh. A wonderful book!" --New York Times bestselling author Sabrina Jeffries

"Day (The Possibility of Somewhere) weaves a quiet tale of love, friendship, sisterhood, and family; she takes time to carefully develop her characters, allowing readers to fully understand their perspectives…. an emotional and touching conclusion." --Publishers Weekly

"In her carefully intentional treatment of Natalie’s neurodiversity, Day depicts Natalie as capable and intelligent via both Brooke’s observant first-person narration and her own dialogue. The book does not shy away from the cruelty and misunderstanding that many on the autism spectrum face. Both Natalie and Brooke are strong, well-developed female characters. A book for readers who like romance that flourishes against the odds and characters who learn and grow." --Kirkus

"A fast-paced and engaging story of family drama and first love." --School Library Journal

"A sweeter-than-sugar summer love story, and the behind-the-scenes theater setting is evergreen." --Booklist
