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?
Fracture is heartbreaking and a laugh out loud experience that everyone needs to pick up. Author Megan Miranda does everything from make you cry, laugh and throw your book across the room.
When Delaney Maxwell falls through the ice, her best friend, Decker saves her . . . eleven minutes later. When Delaney wakes up in the hospital after being in a coma, her doctor says she’s beat the odd. No one should be alive after being under water for eleven minutes.
What transpires next is a series of events that will have you churning for more. Delaney begins to question life. Her parents struggle with the reality that their daughter was technically dead, but now walking among them with some slight erratic behavior and then there is the mysterious Troy who is drawn to Delaney.
While dealing with the after effects, Delaney is losing her best friend in the process. Decker, while dealing with his own demons from saving Delaney, has gained the attention from the popular girl at school much to Delaney’s disappointment. Decker and Delaney struggle with their feelings, both emotionally and physically while both try to figure out just where the other went wrong.
The struggles that Delaney goes through are devastating; you can’t help but weep for her. From nightmares, a distant mother to a boy who wants you as his own to a boy that you want but can’t have, I was amazed at how resilient this character is. Never a woe is me moment for Delaney Maxwell.
