Review: Fracture by Megan Miranda


At The Other End:

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?

First Impressions Last:

I originally saw this for the cover, which is gorgeous! I love the colours and the way Delaney is reflected in the water. Also, it seemed like a very interesting novel from the blurb (no I am not succumbing to reading blurbs). Anyway, it sounded like a good read, and seeing how short the novel is, it was a good short read.

Behind 262 Pages:

Wow, I didn't expect something like that to happen in this book. The secrets and denials and rejections in this book make it heart wrenching, yet not to make you teary eyed but to realise the importance of life and in some ways, who controls life. We can see how much Delaney grows throughout the novel. From someone who was shy and stays with her best friend, then to someone who is confused about life and about the constant pull she keeps on feeling. The to who she is at the end of the novel, a girl who knows the meaning of life and that we all have a choice to who we are and who we want to become. I didn't expect the ending, yet it ended as is should have. Although there are questions unanswered.**

In some ways there was a love triange yet in others there wasn't. We could tell from the very beginning that there was something that was going to happen with her and Decker. In the end, we want to see more of them after the big shock ending to see the aftermath of the occurrence. We see a big change in Troy, one who we thought was someone who could help her turned out to be for the worst. Yet we wished that she would let him explain why he does what he does properly and not only the outside information but the inside information as well. We may realise from this that it isn't as bad and that he isn't as bad as he seems.

I can't really find much more to say about this book. It was a very good book that kept me caught up the whole time and made me want to finish and to see how much her life is changing after the incident.

At the Other End:
Fracture is told from Delaney's perspective, and if you've read the first two chapters, you know that she falls through the ice in chapter one, and she wakes up 6 days later. And what happens in between—well, that's Decker's story.

This is the story of those eleven minutes, and the six days that follow, from his perspective. Because while it must be terrifying to be trapped under the ice, it's a different kind of terror seeing your best friend trapped...

Especially if it's your fault.


**like how her "friends" started treating her again after the funeral.
