*sorry, this review is really late because of a malfunction.
A lot can happen in eleven minutes.
By the time seventeen-year-old Delany Maxwell is pulled out of the icy waters of a frozen lake, her heart has stopped beating. She is officially dead. Then she starts breathing...the doctors are mystified. But Delany knows something is very wrong, even though outwardly she has completely recovered.
Pulled by sensation she can't control, Delany now finds herself draw to the dying. Is her brain predicting death or causing it? Then Delany meets Troy Varga. Is Troy a kindred spirit who somehow understand her weird and frightening gift? Or are his motiveless chillingly more sinister...
Drop whatever you're reading now and pick this book up! Fracture is mind blowing and when Megan is describing everything i think she's right next to me, explaining everything in detail; bit by bit.
When i first saw the book cover and synopsis from Goodreads i thought i wouldn't like but looky, looky who's reading it now? Me! That's right me! And right now as i am typing this review i keep on hearing Delany saying: 'if you had one more day to live, what would you do?' And then 'do it.'
The first chapter just hooked me on. It was reality hitting my face. Of course, Delany didn't see God next to her, or angels all white, with halos or light at the end of the tunnel. She saw a doctor. The way Megan wrote from the start i knew i was going to like this book. Then when someone is about to die Delany knows.
Every time it starts with a headache then a itch and then it devours her body, next, her body starts to move on its own to the becoming dead. And that i've got to say is awesome; it makes sense. Delany skips death so why not become stuck to 'becoming dead' idea. Then for some reason Delany's mom gets depressed because Delany is not the person she was before the tragic accident. When most of the people died i thought it was sad and i loved how Megan use Troy to twist the plot. In the end there is a happy ending and i pretty much loved it. When i finished reading the last 2 pages i read it again and again and again. I just couldn't get enough of it!
The whole plot was about how Dealny got her life back and how she can get her life back before the tragic accident. The plot was also about Troy, the only person Delany can compare but maybe not.
Next, the relationship between Delany, Decker and Troy is unhealthy. Delany likes Decker but she sees Decker with another girl, Tara, she's such a slut. I just hate her! However, the thing that Delany doesn't know is that Decker also likes her but he doesn't know what to do, but when he confesses he loves Delany it all goes wrong. Then, after that Delany starts to hang out with Troy and they end up kissing each other! And i'm like 'hey, what about Decker? He just confessed loving you!' And then i ended up hating Megan because she made Troy and Delany kiss and then i ended up hating Delany because she likes Troy and don't let me start bragging about Troy! But it does end with the right people together.
Delany- Delany was a bit over top with death. For example at the end she goes crazy about saving Carson but, in the end, he dies. But i also think she dumb, aswell. This is because when Decker actually conffesed she just ran away because everyone has died and Troy is a murderer, but Decker could have helped her get through all the obstacles in front of her.
Decker- Love him to bits! I don't know why Delany refused him the first time he said 'i love you' to her.
Troy- In my opinion i thinks he's a little bit creepy for me. I also think he's cruel because he kills people, even though, they are about to die.
To sum this all up i think Fracture is one of a kind of book that you'll even kill for, to get your hands on it. Fracture is a must have for your own library. I have also become an official fan of Megan.
