Fade to Us

Fade to Us 


Book Review:

I have to be honest, Fade to us isn't my typical choice of book. I've read The Possibility of Somewhere by Julia Day and really enjoyed it, so when this came up I was intrigued.

Fade to us is more about adjustment than romance. Brooke has her summer planned out. She wants to save as much money as possible for a car. She has a few jobs lined up and a plan in hand. Natalie is her stepsister and lives with her mum. She has Aspergers and can be a challenge. Her mother becomes ill and Natalie needs a place to stay. Her father offers to look after her. Brooke's plans for the summer are railroaded and her chance of a car seems like more of a dream. Natalie needs a lot of help and Brooke finds herself filling the role. They join a musical theatre program and Brooke summer plans change completely. She always wanted a father and a sister. She just didn't expect the family she got. This book is about love and acceptance.

Micah is Brooke's love interest and helps at the musical theatre. The romance is only part of this book. It's more about family. Micah and Natalie are friends too. Brooke has to adjust to Natalie and find compromises with everything she does this includes her friendships.

This book is a little heavier than my usual read and if it hadn't been written by this author I probably wouldn't have looked at it. Overall, the story is written well and demonstrates the struggles of living with Aspergers. If it sounds like your kind of read you will probably enjoy it. For me, it was just okay.

3 stars out of 5. I like romance above everything else.

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. Thanks
