“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.”
I like that the main character started off naive but quickly caught on to the real story. She is strong yet resourceful. Delaney is one of those girl who is smart and beautiful. I loved that she didn’t think about herself but she thought of others as well.
The love interest is quite complicated but soon it all made sense. I knew something was off at first and well I’m sorry it ended that way.
Fracture is a great story that has many secrets, desires, and what is expected to do. The breaking of rules, changing of others people lives is overflowing on this book. Consistent with great characters, plot and a paranormal trait that holds the reader, Fracture is an amazing read!
I give it 4 BITES!
