Week 5 Reviews: Eleven Minutes, Fracture

Fracture is told from Delaney's perspective, and if you've read the first two chapters, you know that she falls through the ice in chapter one, and she wakes up 6 days later. And what happens in between—well, that's Decker's story.

This is the story of those eleven minutes, and the six days that follow, from his perspective. Because while it must be terrifying to be trapped under the ice, it's a different kind of terror seeing your best friend trapped...

Especially if it's your fault.

From Goodreads:
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?

My first review of Fracture
My Review:
I read both of these before, but it's been such a long time, plus I really need to read the 2nd book, well, I was really excited to read these again! It's basically like reading them for the first time, I kinda remembered some details, but I had totally forgotten that ending! 

Eleven Minutes gave us a look at Decker's perspective, of what happened while she was under the water. And it was great to be in his head, dealing with the guilt of what had happened. Going through the should'ves and could'ves. 

I loved reading the both of these again, and I can't wait to continue (and finish) the series!
