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?
I’ve been wanting to read Fracture for a while, so I was happy when I finally had time to sit down and read it. Although it was a quick, entertaining read, I felt like it could have been better.
Fracture is about Delaney, a girl who wakes up with strange abilities after her near death. The main storyline was mainly about her recovery from it and meeting a strange guy, Troy. Delaney, her best friend (Decker) and all the other characters were likable enough, but the actual story being told sucked me in. I also thought the part about what the abilities actually were was super interesting as well.
Decker was super sweet, while Troy wasn’t. His story was pretty intense and I definitely liked realizing what exactly it was. He was complicated, and the way things ended up with him definitely really surprised me. I wish I had been able to see and understand more of his character, but I didn’t like several things he did.
Delaney was nice enough, but I mainly felt so bad for her, while Decker was the perfect best friend. I wanted the two to stop acting so dumb towards each another. Their relationship was not a main part of the book, but I loved how it was incorporated.
Overall, Fracture was a good story.I just wish that some of the characters and relationships could have been better explained. I’d give it 3 out of 5 flowers :)
