Review: Fracture by Megan Miranda

 Fracture (fracture #1) by megan Miranda

By the time seventeen-year-old Delaney Maxwell is pulled out of the icy waters of a frozen lake, her heart has stopped beating. She is officially dead. Then she starts breathing... The doctors are mystified. But Delaney knows something is very wrong, even though outwardly she has completely recovered. 
Pulled by sensations she can't control, Delaney now finds herself drawn to the dying. Is her brain predicting death or causing it? Then Delaney meets Troy Varga. Is Troy a kindred spirit who somehow understands her weird and frightening gift? Or are his motives chillingly more sinister... 

A page-turning read that will send chills down your spine.

My review

*I won this book from the author website. She sent me a signed paperback copy. This has not influenced in any way my thoughts of the book.


A lot can happen in eleven minutes..

Yes, it can!
This books is terrific. A heart-raced read with every page. Delaney Maxwell it's a girl who survives after a terrible accident. She was dead. But now she's alive. Or not? She's know different. She even thinks she's not human anymore.. But, what's happening to her? The only person to seems to have an answer for that it's Troy Vargas. A boy who can be an angel, but on which side? And while she struggles with the consequences of her accident, she has to find who she really is. She has to find out who the real and new Delaney is. Grown up, comprehen things, and most of all accept them.
It's a great read, really quick, I read it in about 6 or 7 hours. And I'm not a fast reader at all. You have to see beyond the trama of the story, the real significance of life, of living, of love, of friendship, of family and of hope
I didn't gave this book 5 starst because there was something that annoyed me.. Decker. Sometimes a foolish boy, sometimes so sweet. And then again, a jackass.. Ok, what the..?? It got me confused if he was real with his feelings or not.
There are some things that are left without answer, but I'm guessing that this have to continue. If it is, I'm really glad because we have to know what comes after that ending. :)
Overall, I'd recommend this book if you like real books. Contemporary ya read, with a message that will fill you over the edge for good!
"He dragged me through the house, and I let him, because I wasn't sure who I was most scared of at the moment. The stranger I was learning about too quickly, or the woman I'd known my entire life who was quickly becoming a stranger"

"There's what I do and what I don't do. What I say and what I don't say. There's no underlying path guiding my way. No predestination. Just me, choosing the right way..."
