To put into words, the beauty that is beheld in Fracture? I can't say enough that will leave you in awe. What other book have you read that made you cry within the first ten minutes, if any? Yes, that's how phenomenal it is.
Just another normal day in Maine for Delaney and her best friend Decker. All was well, and they were walking across the ice doing just fine, until Delaney slipped and fell. The ice, a little too thin, started to crack and Delaney fell in the ice cold water, feeling the rush of needles in her lungs. Feeling the pain of the water as if it were stabbing her. She tried to get out but couldn't. Eleven minutes she stayed under there. Delaney was dead.
Somehow, someway, Delaney's heart started pumping, beating again. And while in the hospital, laying there in the coma, Decker never left her side. He felt guilty for not being at her side when she slipped. When Delaney finally woke up, even the doctor couldn't believe it. All the brain scans showed signs of damage, but Delaney didn't seem to show symptoms of any. Except for a pull when around sick people. Something you or I wouldn't understand.
Once out of the hospital, and finally getting back to a fairly normal routine again, Delaney runs into a stranger named Troy who seems to know what happened to her from the newspaper. Except, it wasn't posted in the newspaper. And now she starts noticing him around more and more. Decker has always been there for her, but now Troy seems to be sliding into his place. And when Delaney learns that Troy was in a coma just like her, and has that pull, she thinks that maybe they can help these sick people. Delaney is going to have to learn the hard facts about Troy's ulterior motives. He's not going to stop for anything either.
