As the parent of an adult on the autism spectrum, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It's true to the realities of having a family member with even high-functioning autism, yet it also talks sensitively about not only the disability but the joys and difficulties of blended families. It made me tear...

As much as I really wanted to love this book it kind of fell short for me.
First, I do have to mention that I love that they included a character who has Asperger's Syndrome. I think it's important to include diverse characters as well as show how their lives can be different in addition to how i...

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...

I was provided an arc of Fade To Us in exchange for an honest review.
This is a book that I feel needs to be in the hands of ownvoice readers. Because I don't have Aspergers or don't have a relative with Aspergers, I can't comment on how realistic the rep was.
However, I do have a lot of thoughts...

”I am distracted—- by you. It scares me. Not just how quickly life changed, but how much I wish the inevitable end weren’t so inevitable.”
Thank you, Wednesday Books!! If it weren’t for winning this book, I’m not sure I would have picked this one up. Theatre and me aren’t the best of friends but I...

Fade to us by Julia Day a five-star read that won’t fade from your memory. This was my first read by this author and I really hope it won’t be my last, as a writer Julia Day showed us great compassion and honesty in her writing, where Brook could have been a spoilt 17 year old girl she gave up he...

Fade to us is a phenomenal read! I loved the relationships between all the characters, and found them to be realistic. This novel gave me all the feels. When dealing with a special needs character, i believe Julia Day handled it with such respect and realness. This novel is so much more than a fl...
