Fracture by Megan Miranda

Delaney falls through the ice of the lake and spends eleven minutes underwater. Decker pulls her out and miraculously she survives. But something is off when she wakes in the hospital, she isn't the same Delaney. Maybe it's the brain damage, maybe it's the medicines she was on, or maybe it can't be explained that easily. There's something strange going on and she feels completely different but is she in danger or is she the dangerous one?

Delaney captured me from the first page on. The eerie tone of the book kept me engaged and wondering what would happen next and whether Delaney would survive. The strained repertoire between her and her best friend Decker was full of tense moments and doubt about where their relationship stands after her accident. It's obvious they are in love with each other but that's one step that they aren't yet prepared to take with one another. Maybe they never will be. Best friend romances are my favorite right after star-crossed lovers and Miranda has done an excellent job portraying that dynamic.

This is a similar read to Gayle Forman's If I Stay and Lisa McMann's Wake series, fans of either author are sure to enjoy Fracture.

“The first time I died, I didn’t see God.
No light at the end of the tunnel. No haloed angels. No dead grandparents.
To be fair, I probably wasn’t a solid shoo-in for heaven. But honestly, I kind of assumed I’d make the cut.
I didn’t see any fire or brimstone, either.
Not even an endless darkness. Nothing.
One moment I was clawing at the ice above, skin numb, lungs burning. Then everything-the ice, the pain, the brightness filtering through the surface of the lake-just vanished.”

  1. I really enjoyed this one too! And I agree, best friend romances are especially swoon-worthy :)
