This is a short book that I found exceptionally good, I couldn't put it down good, I really was invested in the characters and wanted to know what happened next.

Delaney Maxwell runs across a frozen lake, like she has done several times before, to be with friends on the other side and slips in. It's a terrible accident that no-one expects her to wake from, when she does wake her world is different and in it is a boy called Troy Varga, he offers her some guidance but does she want what he's offering?

Interesting complex and enthralling. ( )

Interesting book, a definite young adult genre. Delaney and Deckers friendship changes after she comes out of a coma after the doctors say, she is brain dead. She makes a full recovery, but she isn't normal anymore. A mysterious young man shows up in town and seems to know more about her than he should. Is he the angel of death? Why is he here, and why is he lurking around the homes of dying people, for that matter, why is Delaney there too. Explores death and guilt in surviving, but mainly a teenage love story. ( )

This book was really good, but it took me a while to finish. It was well written, but I didn't love it. The plot is different, something I've never read before. I give the book four stars. ( )

Going for vagueness here so no spoilers:

I picked up Fracture as an attempt to cleanse my mind after reading (and trying not to vomit upon) American Psycho. I expected your bog-standard, teen paranormal thriller along the lines of Lisa McMann’s Wake series. Thankfully, I got so much more. I got a stay up until 3am book. I got a female character who is believable as a teenager — occasionally selfish, a little slow at appreciating the feelings of those around her —and yet strong in her own mind and self. The supporting characters, particularly Decker and Troy, were well-drawn and complex. They did not feel, as happens in some books, to be mere satellites of the narrator, their lives effectively ending when away from the page. Megan Miranda’s writing style perfectly fitted the tone of the story — no flowery histrionics but a realistic, low-key simplicity that never descended into cheap thrills or cliche. I especially liked how Miranda ended the book; with the loose ends and ambiguity of real life. An excellent debut!
