Fracture by Megan Miranda

Source: Publisher
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
 —despite the scans that showed significant brain damage. 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? 
 For fans of best-sellers like Before I Fall and If I Stay, this is a fascinating and heart-rending story about love and friendship and the fine line between life and death.
Delaney is an amazing character. She has dealt with a lot and still remains an awesome and truly unique character. I liked that it included Delaney's struggle to accept what happened and recovering. Decker was another awesome character. He really cared about Delaney and was a very caring and genuine character. Troy enchanted me at first and I found his complex character to be  very interesting.
The plot of this book was awesome. There were a few parts in the book that were a bit slow, but were made up by the exploration of death and what it can do to the people that it touches. I loved the concept of this book. It was mostly contemporary, but the mix of paranormal elements. Both parts blended well together. Fracture had sparks of originality and I found it to be a captivating story. Miranda's writing created a great voice for Delaney, that told a spectacular and original story. I recommend this book to someone that wants a unique and amazing book. It would appeal to fans of Sarah Dessen and Sarah Ockler.


  1. Has this been published with different covers? I seem to remember seeing a review of this before but the cover wasn't the same.
