Julia Day's sweet YA novel provides a carefully crafted depiction of blended families, Asperger's Syndrome, and summer love. Although the romantic storyline feels rushed and can sometimes be painfully predictable, Brooke shares plenty of heartwarming moments with her family members. As Fade to Us progresses, readers will appreciate how the family dynamics evolve, leading to an emotional conclusion, and understand that compassion and honest communication are essential to healthy relationships.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
