Publisher's Summary

From the number one New York Times and USA Today best-selling author of the Rosemary Beach and The Vincent Boys series, Abbi Glines delivers another smoldering, compulsively readable YA romance with As She Fades.

On the night of her high school graduation, Vale McKinley and her boyfriend, Crawford, are in a terrible car accident that leaves Crawford in a coma. They were supposed to spend the summer planning for college, for a bright future full of possibility. Together. Instead, Vale spends long days in the hospital, hoping Crawford will awaken.

Slate Allen, a college friend of Vale's brother, has been visiting his dying uncle at the same hospital. When he and Vale meet, she can't deny the flutter of an illicit attraction. She tries to ignore her feelings, but she's not immune to Slate's charm. Slowly, they form a cautious friendship.

Then, Crawford wakes up...with no memory of Vale or their relationship. Heartbroken, Vale opts to leave for college and move on with her life. Except now she's in Slate's territory, and their story is about to take a very strange turn.

Glines' millions of fans will adore As She Fades, a novel as romantic as it is full of twists and unexpected turns.

You'll Either Love it or Hate it....

I happened to Love this Book... I was Floored and Shocked with The Plot Twist. I 100% did not see it coming. It is the First Time that all my Guesses leading up to the twist didn't even come close to what happened.
The friendship made between the characters and the Love Between Vale and Slate was proof of how Powerful The Mind and Heart are. I am really having a hard time finding the words to say because it would just give it away. so my parting words will be Encrypted... Vale and Slate's connection was the only thing Real!

A little confusing with this one.

I agree with the other reviews. The plot twist was completely unnecessary. It’s almost as if the author put down her writing and picked it up a long while later and just didn’t check where she left off. I don’t understand it. If I had known the book would have taken that turn I wouldn’t have gotten it. Also. Where was the part where Crawford didn’t remember her??
I liked the Vale and Slate story. She should have just really stuck with that.

Completely Random

I found this book really weird. The plot twist really didn't gel. It just felt contrived and clunky. Also the synopsis mentions that Crawford wakes up with no memory of Vale, but that doesn't even happen. I'm not sure if the synopsis is wrong or if the story has been edited since it was written.
It wasn't helped by slightly odd voices in the narration either.
I'm going to return this one.

Great but the ending was short

Hate books that just end without epilogue... seems a waste. Other then that great book.

As She Fades

I got sucked in because one it is Abbi Glines and two she has a way of sucking you in. I really wasn’t sure what was going on, but I will tell you to keep on listening because all will be revealed!

I was getting to a point in the story where I didn’t like Vale very much and I did just not understand what in the world she was doing. But then I keep on listening and BAM you finally get it.

I liked the family feel to this book and how they all look out for each other, made my heart oh so happy.

This isn’t like Abbi’s other books but I think that might be why I enjoyed it, it was new and exciting and I have more Abbi book to go so I better get on it.

It took a little bit of getting used to Emily’s narration she sounds very young and I wasn’t sure I was going to like it but she matches what Vale seems like in my head. So once I got used to it I like it. Eric does a great job.

Not for teens

As she fades is vulgar and highly inappropriate for teens.
Parents should be aware that it is adult only
