Fracture by Megan Miranda

Breaking tradition here and starting with a trailer because it really gives you the chills that you're going to feel if you read this book.

Fracture by Megan Miranda

Delaney fell through the ice.

She was under for eleven minutes.

But she's fine.

She's fine despite the fact that the MRI scans show all kinds of damage to her brain. And she's fine despite the fact that she ought to have hypothermia and permanent damage to her body. A miracle some might say. Delaney just feels like she's suddenly very separate from everyone else.

Including her best friend Decker who is the one who pulled her from the ice. The one who would have jumped in to save her without rope, if the other teens they were with didn't hold him back.

The only person who might not be separate from her is the strange Troy who keeps showing up since the accident. He knows what Delaney's been through because he also survived a coma and came out pretty unscathed. But he could pull Delaney farther from the people she used to belong with, if that's what she wants. Is it?

This book is COLD. You read it and you are going to feel the goose bumps of a Maine winter. Not only that, but it's creepy and that means that the goose bumps don't go away. Where did Troy come from? How come Delaney's okay? This one had me turning pages to try and find out the answers. What's particularly unsettling about this book is how tense and real everything feels and yet, the reader can feel that all is not right.

If you're looking for an icy cold thriller, this one will do the trick nicely.
