Book Review #113 - Fracture by Megan Miranda


Eleven minutes passed before Delaney Maxwell was pulled from the icy waters of a Maine lake by her best friend Decker Phillips. By then her heart had stopped beating. Her brain had stopped working. She was dead. And yet she somehow defied medical precedent to come back seemingly fine. Everyone wants Delaney to be all right, but she knows she's far from normal. Pulled by strange sensations she can't control or explain, Delaney finds herself drawn to the dying. Is her altered brain now predicting death, or causing it?

Then Delaney meets Troy Varga, who recently emerged from a coma with similar abilities. At first she's reassured to find someone who understands the strangeness of her new existence, but Delaney soon discovers that Troy's motives aren't quite what she thought. Is their gift a miracle, a freak of nature-or something much more frightening?

My Rating: 4/5

I got this book from Netgalley.

This book had a very unique plot that had me captivated from the very first page. 

I liked Delaney as a protagonist although I found her annoying at times. I didn't like her parents at all, although I can understand why they were acting the way they were.

The writing style was emotionally packed and easy to read, pretty good for the author's first book.

There is a short story companion to this book from Decker's point of view titled Eleven Minutes. Click here for link.
