What is the definition of the word fad?

 

Andrews Clements:

One of our Dragons brought the news that our author, Andrew Clements, died last week on November 28.  I have enjoyed reading so many of his books. Hopefully your children have enjoyed reading Frindle. If anyone would like to borrow another Andrew Clements book to read, I have a few to lend. 

I have (hopefully!) attached a link to his obituary.  He was an interesting person!
