After seventeen-year-old Delaney falls through the ice of a frozen lake, she is dead for eleven minutes. Her best friend Decker resuscitates her, saving her life. But life has changed for Delaney in some pretty mysterious ways. Upon waking from her coma, she begins experiencing a strange affinity for the dead. When she meets Troy, a boy who has also emerged from a coma, she is frightened to learn that they share some of the same abilities. Delaney can't help but wonder: is she predicting death--or causing it?
Fracture is a hard book to put down. Filled with mystery and action in every chapter, it is one compelling read. It is difficult to pin this book down to one genre; it is a little bit mystery, medical thriller, romance, and a dash of supernatural. Delaney is a brave heroine with kind and loving parents, and a devoted and hunky best friend Decker. Some characters die, their deaths cloaked in mystery. One character's death seems to be a suicide, but only Delaney knows this. Some making out occurs and language is infrequent (sh-t, a-s, f--k). Delaney and Decker go to a party with underage drinking, and they flip a coin to determine the designated driver. Overall, this an engrossing read sure to be enjoyed by teen girls. >Book trailer from YouTube:
