First selection in my YA book club!!!

Fracture (Fracture, #1)


By: Megan Miranda

Genre: young adult

Pages: 262

Published: 2012

Read: September

3 out of 5

What can happen in 11 seconds? Well, Delaney has accomplished a lot including surviving Maine’s icy water.  This miracle shocked everyone, but are the repercussions worth surviving?  Written from the perspective of a 17 year old female, Miranda dissects the possibility of surviving when you weren’t expected to live and then discovering you have a deepening sense of death. With the touch of paranormal, the insecurities and issues that teenagers encounter are dealt with throughout the story.  The relationship between Delaney and her mother helps carry the normalcy and timelessness of this novel.   I did find that some side plots were introduced and then never developed which was frustrating.  Even with a few faults, I feel teens will enjoy Fracture because of the creative mix of reality and mystery that Miranda imagines.
