Review of 'Fade' by Robert Cormier, 1988
'Fade' written by Robert Cormier follows the story of a 13 year old boy named Paul, who discovers that he has the ability to turn invisible or "fade". Having the ability to disappear as well, Paul's uncle warns Paul of the dangers that come with being able to "fade". Neglecting his uncle's warnings, Paul further explores his supernatural abilities and soon discovers the true evils and immorality of the world. Published in 1988, the novel, meant for readers ages 13 and up has been banned and challenged for its sexual content and graphic scenes, including rape and incest. Though the novel may not be fit for younger audience members, the book can be used as a guide to the real world. The novel is beautifully and honestly written with cleverly crafted characters and settings that expose readers to the brutal truth of today's society.
