"Eleven minutes passed before Delaney Maxwell was pulled from the icy waters of a Maine lake by her best friend Decker Phillips. By then her heart had stopped beating. Her brain had stopped working. She was dead. And yet she somehow defied medical precedent to come back seemingly fine-despite the scans that showed significant brain damage. Everyone wants Delaney to be all right, but she knows she's far from normal. Pulled by strange sensations she can't control or explain, Delaney finds herself drawn to the dying. Is her altered brain now predicting death, or causing it?
Then Delaney meets Troy Varga, who recently emerged from a coma with similar abilities. At first she's reassured to find someone who understands the strangeness of her new existence, but Delaney soon discovers that Troy's motives aren't quite what she thought. Is their gift a miracle, a freak of nature-or something much more frightening?
For fans of best-sellers like Before I Fall and If I Stay, this is a fascinating and heart-rending story about love and friendship and the fine line between life and death."

Fracture is the debut novel from Megan Miranda. Fracture is the story about a girl named Delaney. Who is in a coma for six days. She comes out of it with something off with her brain. She soon discovers she's not the only one with this weird feeling in her brain. Troy Vargas, who was in a coma as well shares the weird brain malfunction. If you had the power to chose if someone dies or lives. What would you do? And if you had one day to live, what would you do?
I really loved Delaney and felt myself going through what she endure throughout the story line.
