My thoughts on 'FRACTURE' by Megan Miranda

FractureFracture by Megan Miranda

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

"If you had one day left to live, what would you do?"

This was such a good story with excellent writing and great characters!

The story is about a teenager named, DeLaney, who falls through a frozen lake and dies. But yet, she doesn't. She comes back and ends up in a coma for 6 days, where upon coming out of that coma, she is changed.

Not in the obvious ways that you would think, but in ways that you would never think. DeLaney ends up having some strange gift or curse, depending on the way that you look at it. This 'thing' that she has acquired changes her life so much and in so many ways.

She meets a strange new boy who she is both attracted to and repulsed by, her relationship between her neighbor and best friend becomes strained and the way her mom looks at her also changes, and not for the better.

DeLaney is trying to figure out what is going on with her and there is only person who seems to know, or at least who is experiencing the same thing she is. The one person she would rather stay away from. She is afraid to open up to other people about this for fear of what they will think or say. So she is stuck trying to deal with it all by herself. Or almost by herself.

But underneath the obvious, are also the feelings she is having for two different boys and she is not sure how to deal with them.

This story just flowed for me and the first chapter literally made me cry. It takes a lot to make me cry but this author did such a great job with her words that I just welled up.

A great debut novel that I highly recommend!
