Faded, was, well, a tad bit boring. The concept's interesting – 4 teens are killed and are then bought back to life to help some spirits – who are like guardian angels and have been around for almost a hundred years – defeat a trio of peeps called The Forces who have been around since 1989. Oh, and it most certainly puts out a new definition of feeling as though someone's watching you.
|I promise you I really don't|
I was there the day she was born. I was there when she started school. I was there the first time she fell off her bike, and I was the one who picked her up and helped her get back on it. You know why? Because I’m her sister. That’s what I’m supposed to do. I’m supposed to protect her. It’s an unwritten rule.I loved Hunter's charm and the way he used words in front of Savannah. It's as though he's doing a creative *wink, wink, nudge, nudge* towards Savannah.
Hunter: So, how about a date?Perhaps what I really loved the most are the failures after the accident, when Madison, Abigail, Jackson and Savannah have no control over their powers. I actually found those scenes funny – I mean, everyone's literally oblivious for the most part – especially Operation Scare Keira. ;)
Hunter: How about a date that is actually in the eighties? I can only find dates that are in the seventies. How about you?
Savannah: You mean the article dates?
Hunter: What did you think I meant?
Jackson: But I thought I was invisible.That's not the operation, but I did find that pretty funny... :3
Madison: Well, you thought wrong because you’re clearly not.
Jackson: But Coach Ford didn’t yell at me once during practice, so I figured I must be invisible today.
Madison: So the first place you think to test out that theory is in the girls’ locker room?
While Faded isn't the greatest start in the entire world or made a dent into my favorites, it's certainly memorable with the characters and its uniqueness (ooo, random thought: girl falls in love with a ghost... Phantom of the Opera anyone?). I'm really curious as to how Miles will play out the second book in the trilogy, and hopefully it'll be much different in any attacks there compared to Faded.
