Really scary book, no idea why this would be considered a good bood for teens, but World Cat says it is. Very well written and suspenseful. But incest and weird sex and other things in this book seem out of line for any but the most mature teen.

A mysterious power has come into Paul Moreaux's life. In the summer of 1938 he discovers that he can "fade". For thirteen-year-old Paul the possibilities of invisibility are at first bewildering, then thrilling. But in a New England mill town torn by union strife, bigotry, and shocking sexual secrets, he soon sees things it is better not to see and learns things it is better not to know. Paul longs to travel, to escape small-town life, to become a famous writer. But his "gift" bears far more terrifying prospects as it propels him toward a future there is no foretelling and a chilling act from which there is no forgetting...and no turning back.
