I didn’t like this sequel as well as I had hoped I would. I met Lisa McMann at a book signing at Joseph-Beth Booksellers a few months ago, and I really liked her. She’s personable, has a terrific sense of humor, and is very down-to-earth for someone who has become rather famous in a short period of time. Fade kind of underwhelmed me, maybe because I found the sexual predator plot to be rather predictable, but there’s going to be one more Janie Hannagan book, and I will read it with as much excitement and anticipation as I read Fade. I need some resolution on what’s going to happen to Janie!
