Fade Far Away: Francess Lantz an Award Winning Author
By: Marlie Salem
Being a teenager is or was probably the most confusing and difficult time of life for many . It is the start of a new transition- way of life, and is the end of what once was. While being young everything seems like a blur and is based on the one aspect of ‘fun’. We never thought of consequences for our actions or how they could later affect us. We also thought nothing could ever have a negative effect on us. When you go in

Not a very long book but it was a good read. I found it. Read it back in 2001. I have to read it again I think I will have a different perspective on it now that I'm a parent.

I remember loving this book when I was younger, and I thought I might be disappointed reading it 6 years later. Nope. This book is beautifully written, and delicately addresses so many issues overlooked in your run-of-the-mill YA novel, including disease, the making of art, and overly intellectual neglectful parents. I won't give anything away, but the characters and images in this book last long after the novel is shut.

A gripping story that will leave a lump in your soul; Fade Far Away is a gentle reminder to embrace the love in our lives and the love of life.
