13/40: Fracture by Megan Miranda

FractureFracture by Megan Miranda
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

From Goodreads: 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 enjoyed this book. The characters were good, the relationships were believable. I also really appreciated that this is a stand alone book. Start, Middle, End. THANK YOU!! I'm so frustrated with series books. Tired of them more than anything. I just want to read one that starts and finishes.

I loved Delaney and Decker's relationship/friendship. Neighbours that grew up together and always had feelings but having such a strong friendship was more important. I liked their struggle to figure things out. I've been there, so it was a wicked trip down memory lane.

I also liked that there really wasn't a solid love triangle. Troy wasn't so much a love interest as he was an intrigue to Delaney. Meeting someone the same as her and being so different was a struggle. Their morals were different and that is something Delaney had issues with. Troy moved towards defeat, Delaney was still trying to help people.

The storyline was something I hadn't read before. Knowing that someone was going to die, but not how or when was a new one.  There isn't much to say about the Fracture. It was good. It was quick.
