Title: FractureAuthors: Megan MirandaRelease Date: January 172o12Publisher: WalkerSource: Good Choice Reading ARC ToursReview: Fracture by Megan MirandaSynopsis (via Goodreads): By the time Delaney Maxwell was pulled from a Maine lake’s icy waters by her best friend, Decker Phillips, her heart had stopped beating. Her brain had stopped working. She was dead.But somehow Delaney survived—despite the brain scans that show irreparable damage. Everyone wants Delaney to be fine, but she knows she’s far from normal. Pulled by strange sensations she can’t control or explain, Delaney now finds herself drawn to the dying, and when she meets Troy Varga, a boy who recently emerged from a coma with the same abilities, she is relieved to share this strange new existence. Unsure if her altered brain is predicting death or causing it, Delaney must figure out if their gift is a miracle, a freak of nature—or something else much more frightening…

In a Sentence: Dark and fast paced, Fracture is a fantastic psychological thriller.Review: Fracture was very compelling. This book had me in its grasp from the first page until the last.Fracture had a great plot. It was thrilling and creepy and suspenseful. I liked how it was based on the question of "If you had one day left to live, what would you do?" And the ending... wow.I wasn't a huge fan of Troy. Even when he was first introduced in the story I knew there was something off about him, and throughout the book I trusted Troy less and less. He just seemed kind of creepy to me from the start. But I can see why Delaney was interested in him. I was definitely rooting for Delaney to end up with Decker. Decker seemed like he'd do pretty much anything for Delaney. I mean, he saved her from an icy death in the first place.I liked the winter setting. It helped set the tone of the book.Honestly I hope that Fracture doesn't become a series. Fracture was a great stand alone, but if there does end up being a future sequel, I would read it because Fracture was so amazing.I think if you enjoyed Before I Fall then you'll like Fracture.
